    Abstract : Gamma-ray burst light curves are notoriously irregular, yet a significant number consists of a single fast-rising, exponentially decaying pulse. These are called single-peaked light curves. READ MORE

  2. 2. High-Redshift Gamma-ray Bursts as seen by SVOM/ECLAIRs

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Abstract : Gamma Ray Burst (GRB) are very bright cosmological explosions signalling the catastrophic formation of a black hole. Therefore, they act like real light beacons that could be detected through-out the Universe and be used as probes to study the contents and phases of the early Universe. However, only a handful sample is known so far. READ MORE

  3. 3. Study of the in-flight calibration of theSVOM/ECLAIRs instrument
