Title Probing the variable, relativistic wind in the high-z QSO HS 1700+6416

Author Dr Giorgio Lanzuisi
Description We propose to perform a monitoring campaign of HS 1700+6416, a luminous NAL-QSO at z=2.735. This remarkable source shows evidences for a broad, high velocity, variable absorption feature in the existing Chandra and XMM spectra. This is the first non lensed, high-z QSO with a detected relativistic outflow. The low quality spectra available, allowed for an estimate of the physical parameters of the ionized gas (Lanzuisi et al. 2012). The requested monitoring campaign (3 40ks observations) will allow to constrain, in each observation, the parameters of the gas within a??5-20%, so that we will be able to study the variability of these parameters between observations. This will allow to compute the mass outflow rate-kinetic energy released by the outflow.

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.
