An observational study is presented of the spectral evolution of gamma-ray burst (GRB) prompt emissions with the Suzaku Wide-band All-sky Monitor (WAM). We selected 6 bright GRBs exhibiting 7 well-separated fast-rise-exponential-decay (FRED) shaped light curves to investigate spectral changes by evaluating exponential decay time constants of the energy-resolved light curves. In addition, we carried out time-resolved spectroscopy of two of them which were located with accuracy sufficient to evaluate the time-resolved spectra with precise energy response matrices. The two imply different emission mechanisms; the one is well reproduced with a cooling blackbody radiation model with a power-law component, while the other prefers non-thermal emission model with a decaying turn over energy.
We performed mapping observations of the Fornax A west lobe with Suzaku in order to measure X-ray brightness distribution. Thanks to the low and stable background of Suzaku, we succeeded in detecting the faint diffuse X-ray emission from the west lobe. Performing careful corrections to the obtained images, we finally measured the X-ray brightness profile extending over the lobe. By comparing the X-ray and radio profiles, the magnetic field found to be fairly constant at ~1 μG over the lobe, while the electron energy distribution is suggested to concentrate on the lobe center.
