The prompt and high energy emission of gamma ray bursts

Peter Mészáros

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


I discuss some recent results on the prompt emission of gamma-ray bursts, in particular the jet and radiation properties of the naked-eye burst GRB 080319b, based on Swift and related observations. I then discuss the recent observations by the Fermi satellite of GRB 080916C, the resulting constraints for the bulk Lorentz factor determinations, and the highest lower limit on the quantum gravity energy scale obtained so far.
