Title The X-ray nuclei of radio-loud AGN from the 2Jy sample

Description X-ray observations of AGN samples provide crucial information about both the AGN themselves and the material that obscures them. Understanding the properties of the active nuclei of radio-loud AGN is particularly vital given that these objects seem likely to have a key role in models of galaxy formation and evolution. The 2Jy sample of radio galaxies and quasars has uniquely good multiwavelength data, but until recently has been poorly studied in the X-ray. We have recently been awarded time to observe all the low-z 2Jy steep-spectrum sample with Chandra, and here propose short observations of the high-z half of the sample with XMM which will give us a complete picture of the nuclear activity in these objects, and allow a wide range of projects to be carried out.

Mission Description The European Space Agency's (ESA) X-ray Multi-Mirror Mission (XMM-Newton) was launched by an Ariane 504 on December 10th 1999. XMM-Newton is ESA's second cornerstone of the Horizon 2000 Science Programme. It carries 3 high throughput X-ray telescopes with an unprecedented effective area, and an optical monitor, the first flown on a X-ray observatory. The large collecting area and ability to make long uninterrupted exposures provide highly sensitive observations.
Since Earth's atmosphere blocks out all X-rays, only a telescope in space can detect and study celestial X-ray sources. The XMM-Newton mission is helping scientists to solve a number of cosmic mysteries, ranging from the enigmatic black holes to the origins of the Universe itself. Observing time on XMM-Newton is being made available to the scientific community, applying for observational periods on a competitive basis.
