THE fermi gamma-ray burst monitor
The Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor (GBM) will significantly augment the science return from the Fermi Observatory in the study of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). The primary objective of GBM is to extend theExpand

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

Discovery of Intense Gamma-Ray Flashes of Atmospheric Origin
Detectors aboard the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory have observed an unexplained terrestrial phenomenon: brief, intense flashes of gamma rays. These flashes must originate in the atmosphere atExpand

Detection of a Spectral Break in the Extra Hard Component of GRB 090926A
We report on the observation of the bright, long gamma-ray burst, GRB 090926A, by the Gamma-ray Burst Monitor and Large Area Telescope (LAT) instruments on board the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope.Expand

Localization of Gamma-Ray Bursts Using the Fermi Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor
The Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) has detected over 1400 gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) since it began science operations in 2008 July. We use a subset of over 300 GRBs localized by instruments suchExpand

Evidence for sub-millisecond structure in a γ-ray burst
GAMMA-RAY bursts (GRBs) vary in duration from hundreds of seconds down to several milliseconds. Early studies1 suggested that bursts with durations of <100 ms form a distinct class, accounting for aExpand

A search for ultra high-energy γ-ray bursts from celestial sources
We report here the details of an experiment carried out at mountain altitude, at Ootacamund (2.2 km above sea level), India between March 1977 and March 1979, to detect bursts of high energy (∼ 5 ×Expand

Angular resolution of the KGF experiment to detect ultra high energy gamma-ray sources
The performance of the EAS array at Kolar Gold Fields (working since 1984 and upgraded by 1987) is described. The array has been designed to search for sources of ultra high energy (UHE) photons. TheExpand

An overview of the current understanding of Gamma-ray Bursts in the Fermi era
Gamma-ray bursts are the most luminous explosions in the Universe, and their origin as well as mechanism are the focus of intense research and debate. More than three decades since theirExpand
