[52.01] X-ray Observations of Type I AGN: Current Issues & Future Prospects


Over the past 3 years we have been provided with greatly enhanced observational capabilities and a wealth of new data. However, in the study of Type I AGN, these new observations have raised a number of important issues which are not yet fully understood, controversial, or both. I will give a brief review of several issues which have arisen from high-resolution spectroscopy, concentrating on studies of the "warm-absorber" and of the Fe K-line. I will also discuss the prospects for further progress in the next few years. This work is funded by NASA.
