|Title||The XMM-ATLAS survey: AGN - star-formation co-evolution|
|Author||Dr Ioannis Georgantopoulos|
|Description||We propose to observe the 16 sq. deg. of the Herschel-ATLAS Science Demonstration Phase (SDP) in mosaic mode (total requested exposure 700 ks). The H-ATLAS (PACS+SPIRE) survey covers regions with excellent quality multi-wavelength data, including the GAMA AAT spectroscopic survey and near- and mid-IR data from the UKIDSS and WISE surveys. The proposed observations will provide the largest contiguous area far-IR-sub-mm survey with X-ray follow-up. This area will contain about 6000 250um and 2000 X-ray sources. The major scientific goals are to place strong constrains on the link between AGN and star-formation activity in the low-redshift (z<0.5) Universe, and to investigate the effect of very luminous AGN on their hosts.|

|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.
