The problem of burst
loss in optical burst
switching (OBS) networks was suggested to be solved by gathering wavelength usability statistics and assigning specific wavelengths for some bursts
according to their predetermined priorities.
Detecting a radio burst
is difficult and the astronomers spent 11 months sifting through data to discover the four radio bursts
from outside the Milky Way galaxy.
asp) that two bursts
, seemingly nearby, appear to have no supernova associated with them.
The gamma-ray burst
, called GRB 060218, lasted almost 2,000 seconds, which is about 100 times as long as a typical burst
They have shown a striking absence of afterglows--and it is only by afterglows that bursts
can be accurately located.
Since BeppoSAX was launched in 1996, its unmatched ability to detect the exact location of a fleeting gamma-ray burst
has made it possible to look for the lingering afterglow of a burst
, which can take the form of X-rays, visible light and other types of radiation.
After recent testing, we found Matisse Networks' optical burst
switching technology to be the kind of reliable and powerful high-bandwidth interconnect solution that meets our current needs," said Mark Seager, assistant department head for Advanced Technology at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
An international research team said the radio bursts
lasted for just a few milliseconds, but that their brightness and distance suggest they came from billions of light years away following a "catastrophic event".
In an upcoming Nature, researchers report using the Hubble Space Telescope to analyze the home galaxies of 42 long-duration gamma-ray bursts
The talk of the meeting was the newly announced, tentative link between some gamma-ray bursts
and evidence of supernova explosions.
Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq:VTSS), today extended its commitment to the Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) market by introducing the GPON PRO family of physical media dependent (PMD) devices including the industry's first GPON OLT burst
mode receiver solution.
are directional, but less than I percent of supernovas are associated with gamma-ray bursts
We don't know what causes these bursts
or where they are produced.
5 frames per second for up to 48 full-resolution JPEG images in a burst
Taken together, the two bursts
"imply the existence of a significant population of [faint] gamma-ray bursts
that go undetected at larger distances," Soderberg says.
