Title Relativistic Jet in the Most Distant Gamma-Ray-Emitting NLS1

Description As hybrids of NLS1s and blazars, the gamma-ray-emitting NLS1s provide a new perspective to investigate the properties and formation of jets and their coupling with accretion. However, such objects are very rare. Only few NLS1s have been significantly detected in the gamma-ray band and studied so far. We propose a XMM observation on a new gamma-ray NLS1 which we have discovered using BOSS and TripleSpec spectra. With a redshift of z=1, this object is the most distant among its kind. The observation will enable us to complete its missing X-ray information for the first time and provide key data for constructing its broad band SED. Its high-z may allow us to address black hole growth in such rare kind of objects.

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.
