Title GT Observations of Active Cool Stars: YZ CMi


DOI https://doi.org/10.5270/esa-qiwds5q
Author Dr Albert Brinkman
Description GT-YZ CMi is a very active mid-M type flare star that produces rather energetic
flares. The role of flare heating of the corona can ideally be studied with this
source. The EPIC cameras can be used to identify numerous weak flares, while the
RGS will be used to monitor parameters such as density, abundances, and
temperatures during larger possible flares. Statistical results will be compared
with the quiescent state. Simultaneous radio VLA observations will be requested
to study energy release physics. The pn camera operates with the SML window,
while one MOS will observe in TIMING mode with the medium filter. The OM
observes with the UVW2 filter, ideal for flare investigations.

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.
