SAS Users Guide updated
The Users Guide to the XMM-Newton Science Analysis System has been
updated for SAS version 14.0 in order to include the latest
information on data analysis methods and updated SAS tasks.
The guide is available from the XMM-Newton Proposer's Info and Manuals
Web page (Section: Data Analysis) at:
The html version of the SAS Users Guide can directly be accessed under
As announced in Newsletter#167, data analysis Threads were revised for
SASv14.0 shortly after the SAS release.
Scientific validation report for SASv14.0
The results of the scientific validation of SASv14.0 have been
summarised in a report available under the SAS Scientific Validation
Pipeline processing based on SASv14.0
A new version of the XMM-Newton pipeline processing software
was released in February. This pipeline is based on SASv14.0 and,
therefore, includes the latest corrections for the EPIC-pn energy
scale. A detailed description as well as a summary of the changes with
respect to the previous pipeline can be found in the release notes
XMM-Newton Science Workshop 2015: Deadline for abstracts submission
As announced in previous issues of this Newsletter, the XMM-Newton
Science Operations Centre is organising the science workshop "The
Extremes of Black Hole Accretion" from 8th to 10th June 2015 at ESAC,
Abstract submission for presentations is possible until Monday 23rd
March 2015 via
The RGS Spectral Atlas
The RGS Spectral Atlas is a collection of plots of the best quality
RGS spectra grouped according to the physical type of the target,
based on the Simbad classification.
The data shown are RGS1+RGS2 first order fluxed spectra, with the
identifications of the emission lines relevant for each type
overplotted on them.
The atlas is now available at
Old XSA interface discontinued
As announced in a previous issue of this Newsletter
the old XSA v7.2 java interface and the associated AIO client files
have been discontinued. Discontinuation took place on the 19th of
February 2015. People that were still using the java interface and
old AIO clients are recommended to check the XSA notes and watchouts
