|Title||Going Beyond COSMOS with the XMM-SERVS Survey of W-CDF-S, XMM-LSS, and ELAIS-S1|
|Author||Prof William Brandt|
|Description||We propose a 12 deg^2 XMM-Newton survey at 50 ks depth of three prime sky regions: the SERVS areas of W-CDF-S, XMM-LSS, and ELAIS-S1. This XMM-SERVS survey will allow outstanding studies of the newly detected 7800 AGNs and 760 X-ray groups-clusters by powerfully leveraging multiple intensive radio-to-UV surveys: ATLAS, HerMES, SERVS, VIDEO, DES, HSC, PS1MD, VOICE, CSI, and PRIMUS. We aim to dramatically advance studies of SMBH growth across the full range of cosmic environments, links between SMBH accretion and star formation, exceptional AGNs at high redshifts, protoclusters, and multiple other topics. The targeted XMM-SERVS fields will have extraordinary legacy value as MOONS massive spectroscopy fields, prime ALMA fields, and DES-LSST deep-drilling fields.|

|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.
