S ep 2 00 1 REM Optical Slitless Spectrograph ( ROSS ) : an instrument for prompt low resolution spectroscopy of Gamma Ray Bursts

  • G. B. Tiepolo
  • Published 2001


Since the discovery of Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRBs), attempts have been made to detect correlated optical transient emission from these objects. In January 1999, the ROTSE I robotic telescope detected a bright optical flash simultaneous with a GRB, thanks to the prompt dissemination to the ground of the high energy event coordinates. To date, that single… (More)
