Title X-ray Spectral Survey of Radio-Selected Low-Luminosity AGNs

Author Dr Yuichi Terashima
Description We propose to study a complete sample of radio-selected low-luminosity AGNs (LLAGNs). The sample is selected from our high- resolution radio observations of 96 low-luminosity AGNs. The data will be used to (1) measure the spectral shape of LLAGNs with luminsoities LX<10^{40} ergs-s, (2) study their radio loudness, and (3) investigate the nature of accretion disks and jets in LLAGNs.

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.
