The Swift gamma-ray burst mission
TLDR
The Swift mission, scheduled for launch in 2004, is a multiwavelength observatory for gamma-ray burst astronomy. Expand
The INTEGRAL mission
The ESA observatory INTEGRAL (International Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory) is dedicated to the fine spectroscopy (2.5 keV FWHM @ 1 MeV) and fine imaging (angular resolution: 12 arcmin FWHM) ofExpand
The INTEGRAL Science Data Centre (ISDC)
The INTEGRAL Science Data Centre (ISDC) provides the INTEGRAL data and means to analyse them to the scientific community. The ISDC runs a gamma ray burst alert system that provides the position ofExpand
The Fourth IBIS/ISGRI Soft Gamma-ray Survey Catalog
In this paper, we report on the fourth soft gamma-ray source catalog obtained with the IBIS gamma-ray imager on board the INTEGRAL satellite. The scientific data set is based on more than 70 Ms ofExpand
The Third IBIS/ISGRI Soft Gamma-Ray Survey Catalog
In this paper we report on the third soft gamma-ray source catalog obtained with the IBIS/ISGRI gamma-ray imager on board the INTEGRAL satellite. The scientific data set is based on more than 40 MsExpand
Unveiling the nature of INTEGRAL objects through optical spectroscopy. V. Identification and propert
Optical spectroscopic identification of the nature of 21 unidentified southern hard X-ray objects is reported here in the framework of our campaign aimed at determining the nature of newly-discoveredExpand
Polarized Gamma-Ray Emission from the Crab
Pulsar systems accelerate particles to immense energies. The detailed functioning of these engines is still poorly understood, but polarization measurements of high-energy radiation may allow us toExpand
Unveiling Supergiant Fast X-Ray Transient Sources with INTEGRAL
Supergiant high-mass X-ray binaries (SGXBs) are believed to be rare objects, as stars in the supergiant phase have a very short lifetime and to date only about a dozen of them have been discovered.Expand
Compton Polarimetry in Gamma-Ray Astronomy
The analysis of compact astronomical objects has generally dealt with the physical properties of the source within a two-parameter space, which is defined by the spectral characteristics and timeExpand
The First IBIS/ISGRI Soft Gamma-Ray Galactic Plane Survey Catalog*
We report the first high-energy survey catalog obtained with the IBIS gamma-ray imager on board INTEGRAL. The analysis has been performed on the first-year Core Program ISGRI data comprising bothExpand
