Title NRCO-108: Long term energy scale of PN Large Window Mode


DOI https://doi.org/10.5270/esa-o6ues2k
Author Dr Peter Kretschmar XMM-Newton MM
Description There are not enough suitable EPIC-pn observations in Large Window mode in CalClosed or sky sources with Fe Kalpha line at 6.4 keV to derive a correction for the long-term CTI for this mode above 6 keV. The objective of this observation is to match an early observation of Kepler SNR (0084100101, rev 229, 10 March 2001) with a new observation in order to establish the long-term behaviour the CTI at 6.4 keV. This can potentially be extended to other lines in the Kepler SNR at lower energies, e.g. Si K line at 1.8 keV and S K line at 2.4 keV. The setup should match as much as possible that of the original observation 0084100101.

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.
