  • We present spectro-polarimetric analysis of \thisgrb\ using data from \asat, \fermi, and \swift, to provide insights into the physical mechanisms of the prompt radiation and the jet geometry. Prompt emission from \thisgrb\ was very bright (fluence $>10^{-4}$~ergs~cm$^{-2}$) and had a complex structure composed of the superimposition of several pulses. The energy spectra deviate from the typical Band function to show a low energy peak $\sim 15$~keV --- which we interpret as a power-law with two… CONTINUE READING
