Abstract

Swift very fast follow up observations of Gamma-Ray Bursts have allowed us to discover a new feature of GRB afterglows: a phase of shallow decay, usually attributed to energy injection in the burst ejecta, which can last for several thousands of seconds both in the X-ray and optical bands. Here I shall discuss this phase in the cases of Swift GRBs 050401, 050801 and 050802.
