Description Our successful incursion via XMM-AO18 into the X-rays of newly discovered magnetic cataclysmic variable (mCV) candidates revealed a promising strategy to identify further X-ray low-luminous intermediate polars (LLIPs). We noticed that there seems to be, although not a rule, common signatures in their optical spectra. Here we propose to take advantage of what we learned and the Fulfil XMM Program to continue a foray into mCV candidates never investigated in X- rays. This time we target handpicked systems that are similar to LLIPs in the optical regime. LLIPs are short orbital period systems pushing forward the understanding of evolution and physics of mCVs, and seem to be numerous in an unexplored subclass of intermediate polars (IPs).

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.
