|Title||Simultaneous XMM-Newton and NuSTAR Observations of IGR J16318-4848|
|Author||Prof Joern Wilms|
|Description||We propose to observe the Compton-thick source IGR J16318-4848 with XMM-Newton simultaneously to our already approved NuSTAR science team observation. Our aim is to measure the first high signal to noise, high resolution broad band spectrum of this type of source. Our goal is to constrain the geometry of the absorber in the system further through broad-band spectroscopy, analysis of the Iron line, including the search for a Compton shoulder, and a measurement of the response of the iron line flux to continuum variations.|

|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.
