Title First incursion into the X-rays of newly discovered magnetic CVs

Author Dr Raimundo Lopes de Oliveira
Description We propose to carry out X-ray and UV observations of six magnetic Cataclysmic Variables (mCVs) that were newly identified from optical observations. All of them were detected by the ROSAT, supporting that snapshots in the ..fulfill. mode are appropriated to characterize their main X-ray spectral and timing properties. mCVs represent virgul10-20% of the total CV population and respond for a substantial contribution to the energy budget in galaxies. While increasing the number of systems investigated in X-rays, the observations have the ultimate goal of determining the mass of their white dwarfs.

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.
