Abstract
The X-ray Timing and Polarization (XTP) satellite, planned for launch in ~2020, is dedicated to the study of 1- singularity (Black Hole), 2-stars (normal neutron star and magnetar) and 3-extremes (the physics under extreme gravity, density and magnetism). With an effective area of ~1 m2 and a combination of various types of X-ray telescopes, XTP is expected to make the most sensitive temporal and polarization observations with good energy resolution in 1-30 keV. XTP will open a new window using its powerful capability of polarization observations; its minimum detectable polarization will be 3% (1 mCrab, 1e6 s).
