Fermi observations of GRB 090510 : A short-hard gamma-ray burst with an additional, hard power-law component from 10 keV to GeV energies
We present detailed observations of the bright short-hard gamma-ray burst GRB 090510 made with the Gammaray Burst Monitor (GBM) and Large Area Telescope (LAT) on board the Fermi observatory. GRBExpand

Atmospheric and Astrophysical Neutrinos above 1 TeV Interacting in IceCube
The IceCube Neutrino Observatory was designed primarily to search for high-energy (TeV-PeV) neutLrinos produced in distant astrophysical objects. A search for. greater than or similar to 100 TeVExpand

Fermi Observations of High-Energy Gamma-Ray Emission From GRB 080825C
The Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has opened a new high-energy window in the study of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). Here we present a thorough analysis of GRB 080825C, which triggered the FermiExpand

Optical properties of deep glacial ice at the South Pole
We have remotely mapped optical scattering and absorption in glacial ice at the South Pole for wavelengths between 313 and 560 nm and depths between 1100 and 2350 m. We used pulsed and continuousExpand

Neutrino emission from the direction of the blazar TXS 0506+056 prior to the IceCube-170922A alert
A high-energy neutrino event detected by IceCube on 22 September 2017 was coincident in direction and time with a gamma-ray flare from the blazar TXS 0506+056. Prompted by this association, we inveExpand

Calibration and characterization of the IceCube photomultiplier tube
Over 5000 PMTs are being deployed at the South Pole to compose the IceCube neutrino observatory. Many are placed deep in the ice to detect Cherenkov light emitted by the products of high-energyExpand

A new γ-ray burst classification scheme from GRB 060614
Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are known to come in two duration classes, separated at ∼2 s. Long-duration bursts originate from star-forming regions in galaxies, have accompanying supernovae when these areExpand
