Description We propose a dedicated INTEGRAL monitoring program of the ultra-compact X-ray binary and micro-quasar 4U0614+091 to study its emission properties in hard X-rays. 4U0614+091 harbours the closest active X-ray burster, it exhibits variations on different time scales over the electromagnetic spectrum, such as synchrotron jet emission, X-ray flaring states, and thermonuclear X-ray bursts. Moreover, the high energy persistent emission is characterised by a particularly hard (non thermal) X-ray tail. We want to survey the dynamical behaviour, better describe its spectrum in hard X-rays, to follow the evolution of the long term persistent emission variability, and to investigate the activity of shorter time scale processes. We request joint XMM and INTEGRAL observations.

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.
