  We report on our statistical research of space–time correlated supernovae and CGRO-BATSE gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). There exists a significantly higher abundance of core-collapse supernovae among the correlated supernovae, but the subset of all correlated objects does not seem to be physically different from the whole : JiřÍ Polcar, Martin Topinka, Graziella Pizzichini, Eliana Palazzi, Nicola Masetti, RenÉ Hudec, Věra. Expected Results of the BATSE All-Sky Imaging Survey • Unbiased survey. • First low-energy gamma ray all-sky survey since HEAO-A4. • First ever all-sky survey in keV-1 MeV band. • Integral survey will continue coverage. • Flux sensitivity mCrab for 9 years of data. • Location accuracy.

Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) were first detected in the s by the Vela satellites, which were launched to detect Soviet nuclear explosions in space they discovered bursts with a time scale of seconds, but nuclear bombs were expected to flash for a millionth of a second, followed by decay. Using the Earth occultation technique demonstrated previously by the BATSE instrument on the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory, GBM produces multiband light curves and spectra for known sources and transient outbursts in the 8 keV - 1 MeV band with its NaI detectors and up to 40 MeV with its BGO.

Gamma Ray Bursts I Flashes of gamma rays associated with energetic explosions in distant galaxies. I Believed to be most luminous electromagnetic events since the Big Bang. I Observed uxes are hundreds of times brighter than supernovae, although seem to be highly beamed, so that total luminosity is. X-Ray Attenuation and Absorption for materials of Dosimetric Interest. J. H. Hubbell and S. M. Seltzer Tables and graphs of computed photon mass attenuation coefficients and mass energy-absorption coefficients from 1 keV to 20 MeV are presented for all of the elements (Z = 1 to 92) and for 48 compounds and mixtures of radiological interest.

Get this from a library. Search for soft gamma-ray events in the BATSE data base: final report. [Walter Lewin; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.]. The Compton Gamma Ray Observatory (CGRO) was a space observatory detecting photons with energies from 20 keV to 30 GeV, in Earth orbit from to The observatory featured four main telescopes in one spacecraft, covering X-rays and gamma rays, including various specialized sub-instruments and ing 14 years of effort, the observatory was launched from Space Operator: NASA.

The archival data from BATSE permit a search for transients that did not activate the onboard burst trigger. Examples of such non-triggered events include faint gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), emission from soft gamma-ray repeaters (SGRs), and bursts and flares from X-ray binaries.

A GRB may fail to. "What BATSE has discovered is that it can be a soft gamma-ray source," McCollough said. This makes it the faintest and most distant object to be observed in soft gamma rays. 4C has already been observed in gamma rays by the Energetic Gamma Ray Telescope (EGRET) also aboard the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory.

A soft gamma repeater (SGR) is an astronomical object which emits large bursts of gamma-rays and X-rays at irregular intervals.

It is conjectured that they are a type of magnetar or, alternatively, neutron stars with fossil disks around them. Overview This database table comprises the gamma-ray bursts detected by the BATSE instrument on the Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory (CGRO).

It includes the gamma-ray bursts from the BATSE 4B Catalog (triggers throughobserved between Apand Aug ) as well as a large number of triggered bursts since the publication of the BATSE 4B Catalog.

The gamma ray burst data are published in a series of burst catalogs, which follow the naming convention "BATSE nB Gamma Ray Burst Catalog", where n is an integer beginning at 1. The latest published catalog as of March is the 4B Catalog.

Each catalog. BATSE usually detects only about one gamma-ray burst per day, and the locations in the sky of nearly 1, events detected to date (diagram) appear to be randomly distributed.

"That's what makes these four events so unusual," says Dr. Charles Meegan of NASA/Marshall, and a co-investigator on the BATSE experiment.

We present the results of searches for periodic pulsations in gamma-ray bursts detected by the Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) aboard the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory. The Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) on the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory (CGRO) has triggered on cosmic gamma-ray bursts between April 19 and August These events constitute the Fourth BATSE burst catalog.

The current version (4Br) has been revised from the version first circulated on CD-ROM in September (4B) to include improved locations for a subset.

The BATSE Mass Model (BAMM) uses a Monte Carlo mass modelling approach to produce a data base of the gamma ray background which is then filtered to simulate the background count rate with a BATSE Gamma-Ray Bursts +90 + 10 Fluence, kev (ergs cm 2) 10 BATSE GAMMA-RAY BURST LINE SEARCH.

The following list shows the BATSE trigger numbers which have data problems. Each trigger number can be clicked for an explanation. When a problem occurs for more than one event, each trigger is listed individually. If an event has more than one problem the trigger number will have alphabetic suffices pointing to each explanation separately.

BATSE Gamma Ray Burst Light Curves. This page allows you view the light curves of gamma ray bursts observed with BATSE. Currently, this archive does not cover the entire mission but we hope to update the archive with older lightcurves. To view event time histories, select a BATSE trigger number, and choose the energy channels and plot type.

Michael Burgess 1. This page provides a lookup table to convert BATSE trigger number to object name.

The format of the object name is a three character prefix, followed by the two digit year, month, and day of the trigger. For example, the first BATSE gamma ray burst trigger # = GRB The following events are included in the lookup table.

A major leap forward in understanding the source of cosmic GRBs was made when the Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) was launched aboard the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory in BATSE had an all-sky monitor that was capable of detecting a GRB virtually anywhere in the sky.
