Abstract

The Japanese X-ray astronomical satellite Suzaku launched in July 2005 is equipped with two kinds of X-ray instruments for the wide-band spectroscopy. The X-ray CCD cameras (XIS) cover 0.3 to 12 keV with the energy resolution of 120 eV at 6 keV. The Hard X-ray Detector (HXD) consisting of well-type phoswitch counters covers 40-600 keV. With these instruments, we organized a team for quick follow-up observations of gamma-ray bursts, aiming to observe the afterglow phase transition and to search for spectral features with the wide band X-ray instruments.
