  • The emission mechanism of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) is still a matter of debate. The standard synchrotron energy spectrum of cooling electrons F E E -1/2 is much too soft to account for the majority of the observed spectral slopes. An alternative in the form of quasi-thermal Comptonization in a high-compactness source has difficulties in reproducing the peak of the observed photon distribution below a few hundred keV. We show here that for typical parameters expected in the GRB ejecta the… CONTINUE READING
