    • Luiza: Analysis Framework for GLORIA 

      Autor: Żarnecki , Aleksander Filip; Piotrowski , Lech Wiktor; Mankiewicz , Lech; Małek , Sebastian
      (České vysoké učení technické v PrazeCzech Technical University in Prague, 2013)
      The Luiza analysis framework for GLORIA is based on the Marlin package, which was originally developed for data analysis in the new High Energy Physics (HEP) project, International Linear Collider (ILC). The HEP experiments ...
    • On Some Statistical Properties of GRBs with Measured Redshifts Having Peaks in Optical Light Curves 

      Autor: Beskin , Grigorii; Greco , Giuseppe; Oganesyan , Gor; Karpov , Sergey
      (České vysoké učení technické v PrazeCzech Technical University in Prague, 2013)
      We studied the subset of optical light curves of gamma-ray bursts with measured redshifts and well-sampled R band data that have clearly detected peaks. Among 43 such events, 11 are promptoptical peaks (P), coincident with ...
    • Finding Hidden Treasures: Investigations in US Astronomical Plate Archives 

      Autor: Hudec , René; Hudec , Lukáš
      (České vysoké učení technické v PrazeCzech Technical University in Prague, 2013)
      We report here on an ongoing investigation of US astronomical plate archives and tests of the suitability of transportable scanning devices for in situ digitization of archival astronomical plates.
    • Astroparticle Physics Today 

      Autor: Giovannelli , Franco
      (České vysoké učení technické v PrazeCzech Technical University in Prague, 2013)
      In this short review paper I will draw attention to the most important steps made in the past decade toward a better understanding of the physics governing our Universe. The results that I will discuss are drawn from the ...
    • The Point Spread Function Variations inside Widefield Astonomical Images 

      Autor: Anisimova , Elena; Bednář , Jan; Páta , Petr
      (České vysoké učení technické v PrazeCzech Technical University in Prague, 2013)
      The Point Spread Function (PSF) of the astronomical imaging system is usually approximated by a Gaussian or Moffat function. For simplification, the astronomical imaging system is considered to be time and space invariant. ...
    • The Czech Contribution to Future Large XRay Astronomy Telescopes: Recent Progress 

      Autor: Hudec , René; Pína , Ladislav; Inneman , Adolf; Černá , Daniela; Maršíková , Veronika; Tichý , Vladimír; Míka , Martin
      (České vysoké učení technické v PrazeCzech Technical University in Prague, 2013)
      We briefly review the recent status of the Czech contribution to future space X-ray astronomy missions with emphasis on the development of new technologies and test samples of X-ray mirrors with precise surfaces based on ...
    • Integration of the Watcher Telescope into the Sierra Stars Observatory Network – Lessons Learned for GLORIA 

      Autor: Topinka , Martin; Hanlon , Lorraine; Meehan , Seamus
      (České vysoké učení technické v PrazeCzech Technical University in Prague, 2013)
      The UCD Watcher robotic telescope is planning to participate in the Sierra Stars Observatory Network (SSON), a US-based organisation that provides astronomical images upon request to subscribing users, who are typically ...
    • Study of Silicon Photomultipliers for the GRIPS Calorimeter Module 

      Autor: Ulyanov , Alexei; Hanlon , Lorraine; McBreen , Sheila; Foley , Suzanne
      (České vysoké učení technické v PrazeCzech Technical University in Prague, 2013)
      GRIPS is a proposed gamma-ray (200 keV to 80 MeV) astronomy mission, which incorporates a pair-creation and Compton scattering telescope, along with X-ray and infrared telescopes. It will carry out a sensitive all-sky ...
