Title Revealing the Accretion Flow in a Bright TDE with XMM-Newton


DOI https://doi.org/10.57780/esa-na0pdpf
Author Dr Jon Miller
Description We propose to continue targeting bright TDEs with the unique capabilities of XMM-Newton, via a rapid TOO and a 1-orbit exposure. Prior executions of this program have detected X-ray QPOs, disk reflection, and reverberation from the inner disk in Swift J1644+57, and potentially even material on eccentric orbits at the edge of a natal disk in ASASSN-14li. Unique, early priority access to data from the Zwicky Transient Factory and the XMM Slew Survey will help us to obtain triggers for this program. This access will facilitate our central goals of revealing the earliest phases of disk and outflow formation, and super- Eddington accretion. Our effort will be aided by Swift X-ray and U-B-V monitoring, HST UV spectroscopy, as well as Chandra, NuSTAR, and NICER.

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.
