Intrinsic spectra and energetics of BeppoSAX Gamma-Ray Bursts with known redshifts
We present the main results of a study of spectral and energetics properties of twelve gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) with redshift estimates. All GRBs in our sample were detected by BeppoSAX in a broad
The high energy instrument PDS on-board the BeppoSAX X{ray astronomy satellite
BeppoSAX/PDS experiment is one of four narrow eld instruments of the BeppoSAX payload, that also includes two wide eld cameras. The goal of PDS is to extend the energy range of BeppoSAX to hard
JEM-X: The X-ray monitor aboard INTEGRAL ?
The JEM-X monitor provides X-ray spectra and imaging with arcminute angular resolution in the 3 to 35 keV band. The good angular resolution and the low energy response of JEM-X plays an important
An unusual supernova in the error box of the γ-ray burst of 25 April 1998
The discovery of afterglows associated with γ-ray bursts at X-ray, optical and radio wavelengths and the measurement of the redshifts of some of these events, has established that γ-ray bursts lie at
Discovery of an X-ray afterglow associated with the γ-ray burst of 28 February 1997
Establishing the nature of γ-ray bursts is one of the greatest challenges in high-energy astrophysics. The distribution of these bursts is isotropic across the sky, but inhomogeneous in space, with a
Identification of a host galaxy at redshift z = 3.42 for the γ-ray burst of 14 December 1997
Knowledge of the properties of γ-ray bursts has increased substantially following recent detections of counterparts at X-ray, optical and radio wavelengths. But the nature of the underlying physical
The afterglow, redshift and extreme energetics of the γ-ray burst of 23 January 1999
Long-lived emission, known as afterglow, has now been detected from about a dozen γ-ray bursts. Distance determinations place the bursts at cosmological distances, with redshifts, z, ranging from ∼1
The afterglow, the redshift, and the extreme energetics of the gamma-ray burst 990123
Afterglow, or long-lived emission, has now been detected from about a dozen well-positioned gamma-ray bursts. Distance determinations made by measuring optical emission lines from the host galaxy, or
Discovery of the peculiar supernova 1998bw in the error box of GRB 980425
on April 25.90915 UT with one of the Wide Field Cameras(WFCs) and the Gamma Ray Burst Monitor (GRBM) on board BeppoSAX, and with the Burst andTransient Source Experiment (BATSE) on board the Compton
