ARGO-YBJ is a “full coverage” air shower detector consisting of a 6700 m2 carpet of Resistive Plate Counters, located at Yangbajing (Tibet, P.R.China, 4300 m a.s.l). Its large eld of view (2 sr, limited only by the atmospheric absorption) and high duty-cycle make ARGO-YBJ particularly suitable to detect unpredictable and short duration events such as GRBs. ARGO-YBJ works using two techniques: the "Scaler Mode", which reaches the lower energy limit (1 GeV) of the detector, and the "Shower Mode", with an energy threshold of a few hundreds of GeV. Here we present the results of the search for high-energy emission from GRBs in coincidence with satellite detections.

Abstract

ARGO-YBJ is a “full coverage” air shower detector consisting of a 6700 m2 carpet of Resistive Plate Counters, located at Yangbajing (Tibet, P.R.China, 4300 m a.s.l). Its large eld of view (2 sr, limited only by the atmospheric absorption) and high duty-cycle make ARGO-YBJ particularly suitable to detect unpredictable and short duration events such as GRBs. ARGO-YBJ works using two techniques: the "Scaler Mode", which reaches the lower energy limit (1 GeV) of the detector, and the "Shower Mode", with an energy threshold of a few hundreds of GeV. Here we present the results of the search for high-energy emission from GRBs in coincidence with satellite detections.
