ALMA host galaxy observation of the off-axis gamma-ray burst XRF 020903.


Abstract (from CDS):

We investigated the radio properties of the host galaxy of X-ray flash, XRF 020903, which is the best example for investigating the off-axis origin of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). Dust continuum at 233 GHz and CO are observed using the Atacama Large millimeter/submillimeter array. The molecular gas mass derived by applying the metallicity-dependent CO-to-H2 conversion factor matches the global trend along the redshift and stellar mass of the GRB host galaxies. The estimated gas depletion timescale (pertaining to the potential critical characteristics of GRB host galaxies) is equivalent to those of GRBs and super-luminous supernova hosts in the same redshift range. These properties of the XRF 020903 host galaxy observed in radio resemble those of GRB host galaxies, thereby supporting the identical origin of XRF 020903 and GRBs.
