A photometric redshift of z ∼9.4 for GRB 090429B
TLDR
We present a photometric redshift of z ~ 9.4 for the Swift detected GRB 090429B based on deep observations with Gemini-North, the Very Large Telescope, and the GRB Optical and Near-infrared Detector. Expand
Signatures of magnetar central engines in short GRB light curves
A significant fraction of the long gamma-ray bursts (LGRBs) in the Swift sample have a plateau phase showing evidence of ongoing energy injection. We suggest that many short gamma-ray bursts (SGRBs)Expand
Localization and broadband follow-up of the gravitational-wave transient GW150914
A gravitational-wave (GW) transient was identified in data recorded by the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) detectors on 2015 September 14. The event, initiallyExpand
The Emergence of a Lanthanide-Rich Kilonova Following the Merger of Two Neutron Stars
We report the discovery and monitoring of the near-infrared counterpart (AT2017gfo) of a binary neutron-star merger event detected as a gravitational wave source by Advanced Laser InterferometerExpand
A gravitational-wave standard siren measurement of the Hubble constant
On 17 August 2017, the Advanced LIGO and Virgo detectors observed the gravitational-wave event GW170817—a strong signal from the merger of a binary neutron-star system. Less than two seconds afterExpand
The optical afterglow of the short gamma-ray burst associated with GW170817
The binary neutron star merger GW170817 was the first multi-messenger event observed in both gravitational and electromagnetic waves1,2. The electromagnetic signal began approximately two secondsExpand
Spectroscopy of the short-hard GRB 130603B: The host galaxy and environment of a compact object merger
Context. Short duration gamma-ray bursts (SGRBs) are thought to be related to the violent merger of compact objects, such as neutron stars or black holes, which makes them promising sources ofExpand
Discovery of the nearby long, soft GRB 100316D with an associated supernova
We report the Swift discovery of the nearby long, soft gamma-ray burst GRB 100316D, and the subsequent unveiling of its low-redshift host galaxy and associated supernova. We derive the redshift ofExpand
The LOFAR two-metre sky Survey: II. First data release
16 figures, 1 table and 22 pages. This paper is part of the LOFAR surveys data release 1 and has been accepted for publication in a special edition of A&A that will appear in Feb 2019, volume 622.Expand
Can magnetar spin-down power extended emission in some short GRBs?
Extended emission gamma-ray bursts are a subset of the ‘short’ class of burst which exhibit an early time rebrightening of gamma emission in their light curves. This extended emission arises justExpand
