  Gamma ray - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gamma rays (often denoted by the Greek letter gamma, γ) are an energetic form of electromagnetic radiation produced by radioactive decay or other nuclear or subatomic processes such as electron-positron annihilation.
Gamma rays are a form of ionizing radiation; they are more penetrating than either alpha or beta radiation (neither of which is electromagnetic radiation), but less ionizing.
Gamma rays, x-rays, visible light, and UV rays are all forms of electromagnetic radiation.

 A Mystery: Gamma Ray Bursts
In addition to the constant flux of gamma rays illustrated in the adjacent image, there are also observed sudden pulses of gamma rays lasting typically seconds in which enormous amounts of energy appear to be poured out in gamma rays by still unknown sources.
Furthermore, the mechanism producing the gamma rays must be such as to allow the gamma rays to escape without too much interaction with surrounding matter, because that interaction would convert the gamma rays to light of longer wavelength.
Assuming these transients to be near the location of the gamma ray burst and the Doppler shifts to be Hubble redshifts, these observations have almost conclusively shown that gamma ray bursts are at cosmological distances and not in the halo of the local galaxy.

X rays are the most energetic forms taken by the photons of light and there are new technologies which offer the prospect for directly multiplying the numbers and energies of X ray photons from media of even microscopic dimensions.
This was the first time a (gamma, gamma') reaction had been excited from an isomeric target as needed for triggering the release of exawatt materials and was the first evidence of the existence of giant pumping resonances.
Unfortunately, because of the unfamiliar perspectives arising from the strongly interdisciplinary nature of the challenge in stimulating the emission of gamma rays, it is customary to feel that despite abundant evidence to the contrary, nuclei are somehow "shielded" by the electrons and cannot be "seen" by radiation emitted by non-nuclear sources.

 Gamma-ray Burst FAQ   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Gamma ray bursts (GRBs for short) are intense and short (approximately 0.1-100 seconds long) bursts of gamma-ray radiation that occur all over the sky approximately once per day at very large distances from Earth.
Gamma rays are very energetic photons (E>10^5 eV), which represent the most extreme portion of the electromagnetic spectrum (ranging from radio waves at the lowest energies through visible optical light at higher energies, to gamma rays at the highest energies).
If there is more than one gamma ray burst on the same day, the letter a, b, c, etc. are added to the name (for example, the second gamma ray burst on July 4, 1999 is called GRB 990704b).

For the many attendees at the Fourth Huntsville Gamma Ray Burst Symposium, Ray Klebasabel described how he discovered gamma ray bursts as he was making sure that his detectors would not be fooled by mother nature.
Three more soon followed, and starting with Vela 3, the gamma ray detectors were made of cesium iodide which scintillates - flashes with visible light - when gamma rays pass through it.
Renamed the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory, it was launched in 1991 and joined a wide array of Earth satellites and deep space probes that carried much smaller detectors.

Busily scanning Earth for gamma rays from nuclear explosions, Vela satellites inadvertently discovered the most violent celestial explosions since the Big Bang.
During the 1990s, the so-called Burst And Transient Source Experiment (BATSE), an instrument aboard NASA's orbiting Compton Gamma Ray Observatory, found that bursts lasting from fractions of a second to tens or hundreds of seconds occurred roughly once a day.
Regardless of the mechanism producing the burst, the intense flux of gamma rays would likely be stopped in the lower stratosphere by collisions with atmospheric nitrogen molecules.

Scientists have known for many years that the nuclei of some elements, such as hafnium, can exist in a high-energy state, or nuclear isomer, that slowly decays to a low-energy state by emitting gamma rays.

But no data was available to prove it one way or the other because the evidence -- incredibly short bursts of gamma rays -- was too ephemeral for systematic observation.
Now a flurry of research is coming to a head that offers the first detailed view of the origin of so-called short gamma-ray bursts, revealing a picture that is consistent with the merging neutron star theory.
To solve this mystery, the Swift Gamma Ray Burst Mission was launched on Oct. 7, 2004.

Hard work by several brilliant scientists had shown us that a number of different processes which were occurring in the Universe would result in gamma-ray emission.
These processes included cosmic ray interactions with interstellar gas, supernova explosions, and interactions of energetic electrons with magnetic fields.
Such a background would be expected from the interaction of cosmic rays (very energetic charged particles in space) with gas found between the stars.
