Description XMM and Chandra data have recently revealed complex and exciting behavior in the Fe K-band of Seyfert-type AGN. These include rapid variations in line energy, characteristic of gas orbiting a central black hole, and a tight correlation of the ionized line component with flux. These strengthen the assertion a significant fraction of Fe Ka emission is from the accretion disk. We have searched the XMM archive for AGN where line emission appears dominated by the inner disk. Mkn 205 is the best target for continuing Fe Ka studies in XMM cycle 5, and we propose a 120 ks observation of this quasar.

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.
