We present the analysis of the XMM-Newton EPIC pn spectrum of the Seyfert 2 galaxy, Mrk 3. We confirm that the source is dominated by a pure Compton reflection component and an iron Kα line, both produced as reflection from a Compton-thick torus, likely responsible also for the large column density (1.36 +0.03 0.04 × 10 24 cm 2 ) which is pierced by the primary powerlaw only at high energies. A low inclination angle and an iron underabundance of a factor ≃ 0.82, suggested by the amount of… 
A Deep 0.3-10 keV Spectrum of the H2O Maser Galaxy IC 2560
We present a new XMM-Newton spectrum of the Seyfert 2 nucleus of IC 2560, which hosts H2O maser emission from an inclined Keplerian accretion disk. The X-ray spectrum shows soft excess due to
Relativistic Iron K Emission and Absorption in the Seyfert 1.9 Galaxy MCG –5-23-16
We present the results of the simultaneous deep XMM-Newton and Chandra observations of the bright Seyfert 1.9 galaxy MCG -5-23-16, which is thought to have one of the best known examples of a
XMM-Newton observation of the bright Seyfert 1 galaxy, MCG+8-11-11
We report on the XMM-Newton observation of the bright Seyfert 1 galaxy, MCG+8-11-11. Data from the EPIC/p-n camera, the Reflection Gratings Spectrometers (RGS), and the Optical Monitor (OM) were
Wide-Band Spectroscopy of the Compton Thick Seyfert2 Galaxy Markarian 3 with Suzaku
We obtained a wide-band spectrum of the Compton-thick Seyfert 2 galaxy Mrk 3 with Suzaku. The observed spectrum was clearly resolved into weak, soft power-law emission, a heavily absorbed power-law
Deep X-ray spectroscopy and imaging of the Seyfert 2 galaxy, ESO 138-G001
We present a spectral and imaging analysis of the XMM-Newton and Chandra observations of the Seyfert 2 galaxy ESO138-G001, with the aim of characterizing the circumnuclear material responsible for
XMM‐Newton monitoring observations of Mrk 3
We present monitoring analysis of 8 XMM-Newton observations of the Seyfert 2 galaxy Mrk 3, spanning a period of ∼19 months. The continuum flux in the 3–12 keV band remains constant during this
Detection of Hard X-Rays from the Compton-Thick Seyfert 2 Galaxy NGC 2273 with Suzaku
We have obtained a broad-band spectrum of the Compton-thick Seyfert 2 galaxy NGC 2273 with Suzaku. The spectrum reveals the first detection of hard X-rays above � 10 keV from NGC 2273. The broad-band
Spatially resolved Fe K spectroscopy of NGC 4945
We present the imaging and spectroscopic analysis of the combined Chandra ACIS-S observations of the Compton-thick Seyfert 2 galaxy NGC 4945. We performed a spatially-resolved spectroscopy of the
XMM–Newton study of the complex and variable spectrum of NGC 4051
We study the X-ray spectral variability of the narrow line Seyfert 1 galaxy NGC 4051 as observed during two XMM-Newton observations. To gain insight on the general behaviour, we first apply
The properties of the circumnuclear regions in the Circinus galaxy
We analysed the spectra from the XMM-Newton and the three longest Chandra observations of the Circinus Galaxy, the X-ray brightest, Compton-thick Seyfert 2 galaxy, to derive the physical and
