Further to the initial Swift UVOT results (Rosen et. al. 3367) we report
the results of co-added, deeper exposures of GRB 050505 with the Swift
Ultra-Violet/Optical Telescope (UVOT) on May 06, 2005.
We detect no source at the Keck determined location (Cenko et al, GCN
3366) in any of the UVOT filters with the following 5 sigma and 3 sigma
limits (in 6" radius apertures)
Filter Lim_Mag Lim_mag Total duration (s) T_range (s)
V 19.82 20.35 2527 2807 - 28543
B 20.50 21.04 1999 3236 - 26917
U 20.26 20.84 2890 3132 - 22757
UVW1 20.81 21.36 1999 3029 - 22040
UVM2 21.13 21.68 2422 2924 - 21132
UVW2 21.27 21.83 1997 3342 - 27826
T_range is since the BAT trigger time (Hullinger et al. 3364).
The magnitudes are based on preliminary zero-points, measured in
orbit, and will require refinement with further calibration.
We note that for the estimated redshift of 4.1 - 4.3 (GCN 3368), the Lyman
limit lies between the UVOT B and V filters - the lack of a UVOT
detection in V may be significant, depending on the brightness of the
source detected by Keck and the true redshift.
