|Testing the origin of the X-ray Emission in Gamma-ray Loud NLS1 1H0323+342

|Narrow-line Seyfert 1s are a linchpin to our understanding of accretion physics, as they provide a direct view of the innermost regions. This is especially true for the newly discovered subclass of Gamma-ray Loud NLS1s, which, in addition to near-Eddington luminosities, show evidence for mechanical outflows in the form of relativistic jets. It is debated whether the X-ray emission originates in the disc-corona or if it is produced further out in the jet. We propose to break this degeneracy by searching for X-ray reverberation and UFOs in the Gamma-ray Loud NLS1 1H0323+342. If short timescale lags exist between continuum and soft excess and-or iron K line, this will suggest that the origin of the X-ray emission is the corona, leading to a better understanding of disc, corona, wind, jet connection.

|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.
