Title X-ray and FHIL emission lines as a geometry probe: The case of Mrk 359


DOI https://doi.org/10.5270/esa-mhp4wwg
Author Mr Rob Detmers
Description We propose a multi-wavelength campaign to observe the Narrow-line Seyfert 1 (NLS1) AGN Mrk 359, both with XMM-textit{Newton} RGS and VLT X-shooter to investigate the detailed X-ray and optical properties of a strong forbidden high ionization line (FHIL hereafter) source, and probe the connection of the X-ray emission lines with the optical FHILs. With this observation we will obtain accurate flux measurements of the emission lines as well as accurate velocity shifts. We will use these to constrain the density profile and geometry of the X-ray narrow-line region (NLR) and the optical FHIL emitting gas.

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.
