Search the XMM-Newton source catalog. Query can be any column name and constraint on its value glued by AND/OR with another constraint. Column name can be: SC_RA, SC_DEC, SC_POSERR, SC_DET_ML, SC_EXTENT, SC_FVAR, SC_EP_8_FLUX and others.
This website provides experimental access to the XMM-Newton source catalog 3XMM-DR6 and some of its associated data products. Launched in 1999, the XMM-Newton satellite is the major European X-ray observatory-class telescope that is operated by the European Space Agency (ESA). The XMM-Newton Survey Science Centre has run the pipeline that processed data of 9160 XMM-Newton observations that took place between 2000 and mid 2015 covering 2.4% of the sky and compiled present catalog. It comprises 678,680 individual detections of 468,440 unique X-ray sources and so far it is the largest existing X-ray catalog.
Here you can:
- search the sources table
- explore data on individual detections of sources you selected
- fit X-ray spectra of detections
- download any associated data products for own analysis
- plot search results
- build Virtual Observatory workflows to study lists of sources
