Description We propose a 200 ks NuSTAR observation of the z=0.1085 quasar IRAS 13349+2438, simultaneous with 100 ks of XMM-Newton exposure. With this, we will be able to reveal the ultra-fast outflow component of the complex absorption found in this intriguing source. With the unique high energy coverage of NuSTAR, combined with high resolution low energy spectroscopy from XMM-Newton, we will be able to map out the high energy absorption lines, completing our knowledge of the ionized absorption. We will explore the link between the low and high velocity absorbers, and determine the origin of the relativistic Fe emission at 7 keV, revealing the geometry of the AGN system.

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.
