ADC_Keywords: Active gal. nuclei ; X-ray sources Keywords: galaxies: active - galaxies: Seyfert - quasars: general - X-rays: general Abstract: We present CAIXA, a Catalogue of AGN In the XMM-Newton Archive. It consists of all the radio-quiet X-ray unobscured (NH<2x1022cm-2) active galactic nuclei (AGN) observed by XMM-Newton in targeted observations, whose data are public as of March 2007. With its 156 sources, this is the largest catalogue of high signal-to-noise X-ray spectra of AGN. All the EPIC pn spectra of the sources in CAIXA were extracted homogeneously, and a baseline model was applied in order to derive their basic X-ray properties. These data are complemented by multiwavelength data found in the literature: black hole masses, full width half maximum (FWHM) of Hβ, radio and optical fluxes. File Summary:
