|Title||Testing Cosmological SZE-X-ray-Multi-Wavelength Galaxy Cluster Surveys|
|Author||Prof Hans Boehringer|
|Description||Sunyaev-Zeldovich Effect (SZE) surveys have finally and successfully opened a new window to study the cosmic large-scale structure in a more promising way than previous methods. We have performed a coordinated SZE, X-ray, and optical-MIR survey to best understand the potential of this new survey technique and obtained the first exciting multi-wavelength detections. Here we propose to extent the current small test area applying the new XMM-Newton mosaic mode, which allows us to adapt our survey optimally to the depth of the SZE surveys allowing for about 100 cluster detections with XMM.|

|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.
