I am working on a research project to prove Synchrotron-Self-Compton radiation through the case study of GRB190114C and am not able to find data for the frequency spectrum even though all telescoped capture frequency data. I need it to plot a flux density vs frequency graph.

I have looked through many public telescope databases such as https://www.swift.ac.uk/analysis/xrt/

Does anyone have any idea where I could maybe get this data from? Any help would be really appreciated!

  • $\begingroup$ You may be trying to use radio based terminology/think to gamma-ray bursts which are nearly exclusively observed in the x-ray spectral region. Normally x-ray astronomy uses energy as the wavelength/frequency axis. It would be possible to convert a spectrum from say (energy) keV to frequency. You may want to look at the SED (Spectral Energy Density) plot for your gamma-ray burst, if there is multi-wavelength obs. $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 7, 2021 at 4:15
