Paper Abstract

With the observation of the gravitational wave event of August 17th 2017 and then with those of the extragalactic neutrino of September 22nd, the multi messenger astronomy era has definitely begun. With the opening of this new panorama, it is necessary to have a perfect coordination of the several observatories. Crystal Eye is an experiment aimed at the exploration of the electromagnetic counterpart of the gravitational wave events, that represent the missing observational link between short Υ-ray bursts and gravitational waves from neutron star mergers. The experiment we propose is a wide field of view observatory. The Crystal Eye objectives will be: to alert the community about events containing soft X-ray and low energy Υ-ray, to monitor long-term variabilities of X-ray sources, to stimulate multi-wavelength observations of variable objects, and to observe diffuse cosmic soft X-ray emissions.
