Description We propose simultaneous 100 ks XMM-Newton and NuSTAR observations of the Seyfert 1.5 galaxy ESO 362-G18 for the purpose of making a detailed study of the spectrum of radiation reflected from the inner accretion disk. Our chief aim is to constrain both the spin of the black hole and the properties of the corona that illuminates the disk. The combination of NuSTARa??s high-sensitivity in the hard X-ray band, the soft-band coverage of XMM-Newton, and our state-of-the-art relativistic reflection models will allow us to break degeneracies between different possible scenarios, and impose tight constraints on the accretion geometry and black hole spin of this bright AGN.

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.
