Description We propose a 10-40ks-field XMM survey over 50 deg2, designed to constrain the dark energy equation of state using the 600 - 1,400 clusters of galaxies that we will detect. The constraints that we will achieve on w_0 and w_a, of 0.7 and 2.4 (10ks coverage) and 0.4 and 1.2 (40ks coverage) are at the level of the ultimate Stage-IV DETF accuracy estimates achievable by cluster studies. This survey will also have lasting legacy value for cluster scaling laws and studies of AGN and XRB.

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.
