[7.02] XMM-Newton observations of Fe K line emission in quasars

A. L. Longinotti, K. Nandra (Imperial College London)

The study of Fe K lines in AGNs has achieved a remarkable improvement since XMM-Newton data have been available. Many insights on the Fe K lines properties and its relation to the accretion disk structure have been investigated with the aid of the high signal-to-noise spectra provided by this satellite. In this regard, the line emission can be studied more precisely for high luminosity objects than previously done by ASCA, providing a potential tool to understand the links between black hole driving parameters and hard X-ray spectra. Here a study of a sample of XMM-Newton quasars is presented including some new results on individual objects.
