Title NRCO-109: PN Small Window mode fast CTI determination


DOI https://doi.org/10.5270/esa-vba16wn
Author Dr Peter Kretschmar XMM-Newton MM
Description Requested by MPE, the objective of this NRCO is to separate the PN SW mode CTI, which consists of a fast shift and a slow read out. To this end, two measurements of the SNR N132D (=LHA 120-N 132) will be performed (similarly as for LW mode in NRCO 47): 1)The remnant placed in the centre of the PN Small Window imaging area. Pointing coordinates: RA 05 24 46.66, DEC -69 38 13.0, PA 173.0 Obs time: 25 ks 2)The remnant shifted by 136 PN pixels towards the readout node. Pointing coordinates: RA 05 22 59.72, DEC -69 39 13.0, PA 173.0 Obs time: 80 ks Both observations should be performed close in time to each other (preferably in the same revolution).

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.
