|Title||Probing the matter flow in distant QSO with the aid of gravitational lensing|

|Description||The M_SMBH-sigma relation proved that the central black-hole and the hosting galaxies co-evolved across cosmic time. The X-ray ultra-fast outflows in nearby AGN, are probably one of the ingredients that built-up the needed feedback mechanism. At high-z, however, they were measured only in few objects, mainly thanks to gravitational lenses. We thus propose to continue a program started in XMM-Newton AO13, to point for 150 and 80 ks a couple of distant and lensed QSO: Q2237+030 and MG0414+0534. Our goal is to characterize their X-ray spectrum and to detect blushifted absorption lines at E sim 7-9 keV and, possibly, blurred reflection component.|

|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.
