Julie McEnery (NASA/GSFC) and Nicola Omodei (Stanford) report
on behalf of the Fermi-LAT collaboration.
The Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) detected emission from
GRB 100826A also detected by GBM (trigger 304556304) at
22:58:22.89 on August 26, 2010.
The GBM location was at a very large angle of (~70 degrees) to
the LAT boresight, and no significant excess is seen using
standard analysis procedures.
Using a non-standard data selection, over 350 counts above
background were detected within a 50 s interval coinciding with
the first GBM broad peak. The LAT light curve has a very similar
structure to this GBM peak, with the maximum count rate occurring
at ~22 s post-trigger. A preliminary study of the instrument
performance at such a large inclination suggests that these events
are likely to be low energy gamma-rays, with energies less than 200
MeV. This data selection has insufficient spatial resolution to provide
a reliable LAT localization.
Further analysis is ongoing.
