Abstract

The ARGO‐YBJ experiment is a full coverage array made of Resistive Plate Chambers (RPCs) operated in streamer mode to detect the extensive array showers (EASs). With large field of view (>2sr) and high duty cycle (>90%), the ARGO‐YBJ detector is the right ground‐based apparatus to detect VHE GRBs, while the high altitude (4300 m a.s.l) and scaler working mode enable it to detect GRBs in the GeV region as high energy follow‐up observation of satellites such as SWIFT. If a GRB signal is detected, the four scaler channels, which correspond to different energy thresholds, can provide further information on the energy spectrum and its cut‐off. More than 40 SWIFT GRBs were in ARGO‐YBJ field of view, no significant excess was detected till now.
