|X-ray spectroscopy of the narrow emission line Seyfert 1 galaxy NGC7314
|Dr Bert Brinkman
|GT - NGC7314 is a narrow emission line galaxy known to exhibit rapid, large amplitude X-ray variability. The RGS and EPIC data will be used to characterise the components of its X-ray spectrum and to study their behaviour over time, while the OM will monitor its optical-UV spectrum. Rapid variability in the Fe K line profile has also been observed, and its behaviour in relation to the continuum X-ray flux will be investigated in detail with the EPIC data.

|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.
