XMM-Newton EPIC Background Analysis

XMM-Newton background maps for the 3 EPIC instruments in their different instrument mode/filter combinations and in several energy bands have been constructed using a superposition of many pointed observations. Long exposure event datasets for the different instrument/mode/filter combinations have also been constructed. Details on how to obtain these background maps and event files, together with related software and explanatory notes on their construction and usage can be found here.

Further pages on XMM-Newton Data Analysis at Birmingham can be found here.
