|Title||Snap-shot survey of INTEGRAL sources in the Galactic plane|
|Author||Prof Oleg Kargaltsev|
|Description||We propose a survey of unclassified INTEGRAL sources from the latest INTEGRAL-IBIS catalog. Using several parameter cuts, we have identified a sub-sample that must be dominated by Galactic sources such as accreting binaries, CVs, young pulsars and their nebulae, and magnetars. We aim to identify their X-ray counterparts, localize their positions (to 1.-2.precision), measure X-ray properties, and determine the nature of the sources through multiwavelength classification. This will increase the population of classified Galactic sources detected in both hard and soft X-rays. The prudent snap-shot survey approach, supplemented with the multiwavelength classification, will shed light on population of Galactic|

|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.
