Abstract

We propose a search for lensed candidates using an achromatic cross-correlation method, by looking at bursts days to years apart coming from approximately the same part of the sky. We use gamma-ray burst data from Fermi spacecraft. We search for 'repeating' bursts, which would be the lensed manifestation of the same event seen days or months apart. A lensed pair would enable us to constrain the mass and the gravitational potential structure of the lensing object.
