Power density spectrum plot feature added to the website. Its use is showcased in a tutorial where one can re-discover several new extragalactic pulsars — super-Eddington pulsars in ULX and the slowest spinning X-ray pulsar in a globular cluster.

WEBSITE OVERVIEW

This website provides experimental access to the XMM-Newton source catalog 4XMM-DR9 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 11204 XMM-Newton observations that took place between 2000 and 2019 covering 11152 square degrees of the sky and compiled present catalog. It comprises 810 795 individual detections of 550 124 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
