Title OM Visual Grism Calibration using G158-100


DOI https://doi.org/10.5270/esa-e74f618
Author Dr Fred Jansen XMM-Newton PS
Description CAL-The primary goals of the observation of the G158-100 is the spectrophotometric calibration of the grism and the calibration of the grism PSF. Secondary calibration goals are the verification of the wavelength scale using spectral features in the spectrum of G158-100. Furthermore it is intended to measurement the instrument PSF of the non-dispersive filter elements by placing a fast mode window ontarget. The target count rate and the PSF shape is studied under count to framerate ratio. The study also includes an OM default configuration. Field stars are used to verify the astrometric solution. The estimated OM overhead time is 12.6-2.9-9.9 ksec for the unsplit observation-1st part-2nd part of the initial observation and 10.9ksec for folluw up observation.

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.
