Abstract

We investigate for possible evidence of Inverse Compton (IC) emission in the X-ray afterglow of XRF 050406. In the framework of the standard fireball model, we show how the late-time flattening observed in the X-ray light curve can be explained in a synchrotron-plus-IC scenario, with the appearance of an IC component above the synchrotron one at late times.
