Description We propose to observe the Narrow Line Seyfert 1 galaxy IRASvirgul13349+2438 with XMM--Newton for a total exposure of 130virgulks. The main objective of our proposal are 1) the study of the Fe K band which exhibits spectral complexity due to the simultaneous presence of a broad relativistic Fe line and absorption structures, one of which is significantly redshifted with respect to the expected energy. We will use the observation to separate the different spectral components, to confirm the presence of energy--shifted absorption lines, and to study the short timescale variability of the absorption features; 2) the study of the warm absorber and, in particular, of its long--term variations.

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.
