Title Completing and Ensuring Major Impact from the XMM-SERVS Survey


DOI https://doi.org/10.5270/esa-9eof9rs
Author Prof William Brandt
Description We propose to complete our 12 deg^2 survey at 50 ks depth of three legacy sky
regions\: the SERVS areas of W-CDF-S, ELAIS-S1, and XMM-LSS. XMM-LSS won a 1.3
Ms AO-15 allocation. W-CDF-S and ELAIS-S1 coverage is now integrally required so
that XMM-SERVS can dramatically advance studies of SMBH growth across the full
range of cosmic environments, links between SMBH accretion and host-galaxy
properties, groups/clusters at z = 0.1-2, protoclusters, and other topics.
XMM-SERVS will allow outstanding studies of the newly detected 9000 AGNs and 760
X-ray groups/clusters by powerfully leveraging its superior radio-to-UV
coverage, and its fields will have extraordinary legacy value as MOONS massive
spectroscopy fields, DES/LSST deep-drilling fields, and prime ALMA fields.

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.
