10 Xiang-Yu Wang Nanjing Univ. The synchrotron scenario 1) Can the maximum syn. energy reach 70 GeV ? 1) Can the maximum syn. energy reach 70 GeV ? Yes, only when Bohm diffusive shock acceleration ( ) ---a parameter describing the efficiency of the shock acceleration ( Wang, Li, Dai & Meszaros 2009 ) (cf Ioka’talk)

11 Xiang-Yu Wang Nanjing Univ. The synchrotron scenario two assumptions: 1)equipartition magnetic field: 2) causality constraint: Inverse Compton must be in the Klein-Nishina regime, which leads naturally to a low, invisible IC component 2) Why no visible IC bump?

12 Xiang-Yu Wang Nanjing Univ. The synchrotron scenario KN effect on the low-energy spectrum Can makes the low-energy spectrum harder (α= -1.02±0.02) in GRB080916C () Can makes the low-energy spectrum harder (α= -1.02±0.02) in GRB080916C ( also see Derishev et al. 2003; Nakar et al. 09 ) Low-energy spectral index ? The ratio of IC cooling efficiency to syn cooling efficiency is not a constant anymore, but depends on γ

14 Xiang-Yu Wang Nanjing Univ. Models for the extended emission Hadronic cascade process (Dermer & Atoyan 04) Hadronic cascade process (Dermer & Atoyan 04) Forward shock — long lived Forward shock — long lived  synchrotron: slow decay (Kumar & Barniol Duran09)  IC: rise initially and slow decay (Zhang & Meszaros 01; Fan et al. 08) Reverse shock --- short lived, fast decay (Wang et al. 2001) Reverse shock --- short lived, fast decay (Wang et al. 2001)

15 Xiang-Yu Wang Nanjing Univ. Forward shock IC emission Forward shock IC emission Zhang & Meszaros 01 First rise, then decay

16 Forward shock synchrotron scenario Can easily explain the simple decay Can easily explain the simple decay The flux level matches the observations (Kumar &Barniol Duran 09) The flux level matches the observations (Kumar &Barniol Duran 09) Possible problems: Possible problems: 1) maximum photon energy (Abdo et al. arXiv: ; Piran & Nakar 10) 2) too steep (Ghisellini et al. 09), see also Poster #95 (T. Uehara) on A Barniol Duran & Kumar 09

17 If afterglow emission, KN effect should be taken into account For afterglow electrons in the Thomson scattering, For afterglow electrons in the Thomson scattering, Y Y For high-energy afterglow emission, For high-energy afterglow emission, ( ) is large, inverse Compton scattering with synchrotron peak photons should be in Klein-Nishina regime ( ) is large, inverse Compton scattering with synchrotron peak photons should be in Klein-Nishina regime Sari & Esin 2001: < Compton Y parameter depends on γ, therefore depends on ν !

18 One example: the slow-cooling case

20 Compton Y parameters (t=10 s)

21 KN effects -summary (1) For a wide range of parameters, Y(100MeV) is initially small, typically smaller than 1 For a wide range of parameters, Y(100MeV) is initially small, typically smaller than 1 Leading to a high synchrotron luminosity at early time Leading to a high synchrotron luminosity at early time Xiang-Yu Wang Nanjing Univ. Y here is dependent of ν Kumar & Barniol Duran 09:

24 KN effects –summary (2) At very early time, synchrotron emission is usually dominant in the LAT energy band (30MeV to tens of GeV) At very early time, synchrotron emission is usually dominant in the LAT energy band (30MeV to tens of GeV) SSC dominates only above the maximum synchrotron energy SSC dominates only above the maximum synchrotron energy Xiang-Yu Wang Nanjing Univ.

25 iii) Evolution of Y parameters with time Slow-cooling case Slow-cooling case Wang, He, et al. 2010

26 The fast-cooling case

27 KN effects –summary (3) For certain parameter space, Y(100MeV) increases with time--- the KN suppression effect of high-energy electrons weakens with time, so that the IC loss increases with time. For certain parameter space, Y(100MeV) increases with time--- the KN suppression effect of high-energy electrons weakens with time, so that the IC loss increases with time. If Y(100MeV) >1 as well, leading to a steeper decay than predicted by the standard synchrotron theory If Y(100MeV) >1 as well, leading to a steeper decay than predicted by the standard synchrotron theory A testable prediction for this scenario: the spectrum becomes harder meanwhile A testable prediction for this scenario: the spectrum becomes harder meanwhile Xiang-Yu Wang Nanjing Univ.
