Description We propose a deep 80 ks observations of the magnetar, 1E 1841-045 in order to perform phase resolved spectral analysis using physical magnetar emission models. With this observation we will be able to construct the surface temperature and magnetic field topology, as well as the magnetospheric structure of this unique magnetar. Given that the persistent X-ray emission properties of 1E 1841-045 do not vary significantly, we will employ recent NuSTAR observations, and perform broadband (0.5-79 keV) X-ray spectroscopy of the source. We will also be able to search for phase dependent spectral features and low level magnetar bursts from 1E 1841-045 with this data set.

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.
