Title A Deep Observation of V1118 Ori in Outburst with XMM-Newton

Author Dr Marc Audard
Description We propose to observe the young accreting star V1118 Ori with XMM-Newton for 100ks during AO5. We aim to obtain a high signal-to-noise ratio CCD spectrum to quantify the X-ray properties of V1118 Ori in outburst in detail. Our goal is to detect additional spectral components than the dominant plasma detected in the CCD spectra obtained during previous short observations. The long exposure will help us to study the short-term variability of V1118 Ori in the X-rays, and to correlate it with the optical and near-infrared light curves. The XMM-Newton data will complement our approved Chandra X-ray monitoring that will continue in 2006. The X-ray data will help us to understand the interplay between the accretion disk and the magnetosphere and photosphere of an accreting young star.

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.
