We have reconstructed the spectrum of the afterglow of GRB 970508 on 1997 May 21.0 UT (12.1 days after the gamma-ray burst burst) on the basis of observations spanning, the X-ray-to-radio range. The low-frequency power-law index of the spectrum, alpha = 0.44 +/- 0.07 (F, proportional to nu(sup alpha)) is in agreement with the expected value alpha = 1/3 for optically thin synchrotron radiation. The 1.4 emission is self-absorbed. We infer constraints on the break frequencies nu(sub c) and nu(sub m) on 1997 May 21.0 UT from a spectral transition from F, approximately nu(sup -0.6) to F, approximately nu(sup -1.1) in the optical passband around 1.4 days. A model of an adiabatically expanding blast wave emitting synchrotrons radiation, in which a significant fraction of the electrons cool rapidly, provides a successful and consistent descrip...

The low-frequency power-law index of the spectrum, alpha = 0.44 +/- 0.07 (F(sub nu) proportional to nu(exp alpha)), is in agreement with the expected value alpha = 1/3 for optically thin synchrotron radiation. The 1.4 GHz emission is self-absorbed. We infer constraints on the break frequencies nu(sub c) and nu(sub m) on 1997 May 21.0 UT from a spectral transition from F(sub nu) approx. nu(exp -0.6) to F(sub nu) approx. nu(exp -1.1) in the optical passband around 1.4 days. A model of an adiabatically expanding, blast wave emitting synchrotron radiation, in which a significant fraction of the electrons cool rapidly, provides a successful and consistent ...

We report on the results of a search for a radio counterpart to the strong gamma-ray burst GRB 940301. Observations with the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope of the Compton Telescope error box region of GRB 940301 began on March 4, 1994, at 21 cm and April 2, 1994, at 92 cm. No flux density variations were detected at 92 cm above S= 10 mJy (5 (sigma)) within a period of 1 to 4 months after the burst. However, when we compared the field with Westerbork Northern Sky Survey data, taken two years prior to GRB 940301, we found two radio sources with significantly increased flux densities. These sources, only 17 min. apart, are located at the 2.3 and 2.6(sigma) Compton Telescope confidence contours. Their separation from the Inter Planetary Network annulus virtually excludes association with GRB 940301. Further observations in January 19...
