|Title||Investigating the disc-jet connection in the gamma-ray NLSy1 1H 0323+342|
|Author||Dr Filippo D.Ammando|
|Description||The discovery of variable gamma-ray emission from narrow-line Seyfert 1s poses intriguing questions about the formation of relativistic jets, the mechanisms of high-energy production, and the jet-disc connection. We propose a 70 ksec XMM-Newton observation of the gamma-ray NLSy1 1H 0323+342 that will give us the possibility to investigate the nature of the soft excess and the presence of the Iron emission line, inferring important information about the BH spin and the region of accretion disc responsible for the X-ray emission. Thanks to XMM and Fermi-LAT we will also be able to build a detailed SED and study the relation between the accretion and jet power in 1H 0323+342, providing for the first time a comprehensive picture of the disc-jet connection in gamma-ray NLSy1.|

|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.
