Broad band observations of gamma-ray burst afterglows

Research output: Working paperpeer-review


We propose a broad band observation of three gamma-ray burst afterglows in order to constrain the physics of the fireball that produce the burst, the density profile and composition of the surrounding environment of the burst, and deduce properties about the stellar progenitor of the burst. This observation will be performed in co-ordination with ESO APEX and VLT telescopes. We request three observations of 50 kiloseconds each, starting 70 kiloseconds after the start of the burst, using the EPIC MOS and PN cameras.
