Description As hybrids of NLS1s and blazars, the recently discovered gamma-ray emitting NLS1s excited a great interests to the AGN community. With relatively small black hole (BH) mass and accreting close to Eddington, these NLS1s provides a new perspective to investigate the properties and formation of jets and their coupling with BH accretion. However, gamma-ray emitting NLS1s are rare and there are only sevend significantly detected in the gamma-ray band and being studied so far. We propose to observe a newly discovered gamma-ray NLS1 with XMM-Newton in the X-ray, UV and optical bands. These observations will help to complete the missing X-ray spectral and temporal information and constructing its broad band SED, which are crucial for modeling and constraining the jet parameters in this object.

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.
