|Title||A BROAD BAND VIEW OF THE DISC-CORONA SYSTEM OF MRK 110|
|Author||Dr Delphine Porquet|
|Description||We propose to probe the disc-corona system and determine the BH spin of the bright bare AGN Mrk 110. Our 2 in a spectral analysis method is based on the global energetics of the disc-corona system and accounts for the contribution of relativistic reflection and the coronal extension. It has been successfully tested on the moderate accretion rate bright bare AGN, Ark120, where for the first time we tightly constrained its BH spin, and revealed that the corona radius decreases with increasing flux.|

|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.
