Recently observed GRBs

Swift-XRT GRB lightcurve repository

The entire UKSSDC will be offline from 0700 UT on March 5, to 1800 UT on March 8 due to work being carried out in the machine room hosting our servers. All of our services, including the website, data access and on-demand processing will be unavailable during this period. On-demand processing services will be disabled from 0000 UT on March 5. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

This website contains a repository of Swift/XRT lightcurves for all GRBs which have been detected by this instrument. These lightcurves, which are official products of the Swift/XRT team, have been extensively tested against manually-created lightcurves. Users are advised that different binning of a lightcurve can affect its detailed appearance. For more information, see the online documentation.
