Description We propose to perform EPIC spectroscopy and OM photometry of 4 powerful radio-loud quasars with known large scale radio-X properties, and where an Fe line was detected at 6--7 keV in our short Chandra observations. The proposed observations will enable us to: 1) Quantify the Fe line profile and determine its origin; 2) Determine the shape of the underlying X-ray continuum; and 3) Constrain the broad-band SEDs, in particular search for thermal UV emission which is asignature of standard disks. Ultimately, this will allow us to discern the relative roles of beamed and isotropic radiation from the cores of RL AGN, yielding information on the jet-disk connection and on the origin of the RL-RQ AGN division.

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.
