Description We propose a detailed study of the acceleration of particles in the south-west rim of SN 1006 to determine the geometry of the acceleration in this prototype of the class of radio bipolar supernova remnants. To reach our goal, we need to characterize the following quantities in both synchrotron rims all along the shock at the scale of the width of the synchrotron filaments: cut-off frequency of the synchrotron spectrum and downstream magnetic field, together with estimates of the level of spectral and hydrodynamical back-reaction. Our previous LP on SN 1006 provides these quantities for the north-east rim, but not for the south-west rim which hence has insufficient statistics. To achieve the above objectives, we need a new observation of 120 ks of the south-west rim.

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.
