Title Enlarging the parameter space of ionized outflowing absorbers in quasars

Author Dr Enrico Piconcelli
Description We propose a deep (100 ks) spectroscopic follow-up of a recently-discovered ionized absorber with unprecedented physical parameters. The unique combination of large column density, ionization state and source redshift (zvirgul0.66) makes it the most massive and the most distant warm absorber detected so far. We design our program to impose meaningful constraints on its kinematics with the aim of providing an unambiguous classification of the ionized absorber and extending the observed parameter space of nuclear outflows traced by ionized gas in AGN.

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.
