Description Recent deep FIR, sub-mm and X-ray observations of the cosmic background all point to the importance of HyLIRGs in a cosmological context. XMM offers for the first time the opportunity to study these objects in the X-ray band at redshift 1. IRAS F21243-4501 and IRAS F15307+3252, two HyLIRGs at z sim 0.9, are proposed for observation with XMM. Our goals are to obtain the first X-ray spectra of high-z HyLIRGs and measure both absorption and FeK line parameters precisely. To achieve these goals, we will take advantage of the redshift which shifts the expected strong absorption and FeK lines where the XMM sensitivity is greatest.

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.
