12 Jul 2016 Yu Hoi-Fung van Eerten Hendrik J. Greiner Jochen Sari Re'em Bhat P. Narayana von Kienlin Andreas Paciesas William S. Preece Robert D.

We explain the results of Yu et al. (2015b) of the novel sharpness angle measurement to a large number of spectra obtained from the Fermi gamma-ray burst monitor. The sharpness angle is compared to the values obtained from various representative emission models: blackbody, single-electron synchrotron, synchrotron emission from a Maxwellian or power-law electron distribution...
