The abundance of primordial black holes is currently significantly constrained in a wide range of masses. The weakest limits are established for the small mass objects, where the small intensity of the associated physical phenomenon provides a challenge for current experiments. We used gamma-ray bursts with known redshifts detected by the Fermi Gamma-ray Burst Monitor to search for the femtolensing effects caused by compact objects. The lack of femtolensing detection in the data provides new… Expand
