Received ; accepted – 2 – ABSTRACT The gamma–ray burst of 1997 February 28 was localized using the arrival– time analysis method with the Ulysses, BeppoSAX, and WIND spacecraft. The result is a ±31.5 ′′ (3σ) wide annulus of possible arrival directions which intersects both the position of the burst determined independently by the SAX Wide Field Camera, and(More)
Your thesaurus codes are: missing; you have not inserted them ASTRONOMY AND ASTROPHYSICS Abstract. We have observed with the BeppoSAX satellite the quiescent counterpart of the Soft Gamma-ray Repeater SGR 1806–20. Observations performed in October 1998 and in March 1999 showed that this pulsar continued its long term spin-down trend at an average rate of ∼8(More)
A new carboxylating reagent ((-)CH(2)CN/CO(2)) was obtained by bubbling CO(2) in a CH(3)CN-TEAP (tetraethylammonium perchlorate) solution previously electrolyzed under galvanostatic control. Organic carbamates were isolated from these solutions after addition of amines and an alkylating agent. In this paper, we describe the optimized conditions for the(More)
SuperAGILE is a coded mask experiment based on silicon microstrip detectors. It operates in the 15-45 keV nominal energy range, providing crossed one-dimensional images of the X-ray sky with an on-axis angular resolution of 6 arcmin, over a field of view in excess of 1 steradian. It was designed as the hard X-ray monitor of the AGILE space mission, a small(More)
An improved and efficient electrochemical N-acylation of chiral oxazolidin-2-ones has been achieved. The generation of the nitrogen anion is obtained under mild conditions and without addition of base or probase, by direct electrolysis of a solution of MeCN-TEAP containing the oxazolidinone. Acylation agents (acid chlorides or anhydrides) were added at the(More)
Strong electric discharges associated with thunderstorms can produce terrestrial gamma-ray flashes (TGFs), i.e., intense bursts of x rays and γ rays lasting a few milliseconds or less. We present in this Letter new TGF timing and spectral data based on the observations of the Italian Space Agency AGILE satellite. We determine that the TGF emission above 10(More)
In this paper we present BeppoSAX and XMM-Newton observations of two long Gamma-ray bursts, the X-ray rich event of December 11, 2001 (GRB011211) and the hard and very bright event of November 21, 2001 (GRB011121). In both events we find evidence of a late X-ray burst, taking place several minutes after the prompt emission. In the November burst the(More)
The well-known Crab Nebula is at the center of the SN1054 supernova remnant. It consists of a rotationally powered pulsar interacting with a surrounding nebula through a relativistic particle wind. The emissions originating from the pulsar and nebula have been considered to be essentially stable. Here, we report the detection of strong gamma-ray (100(More)
