Abstract

We compared the physical parameters (e.g. temporal decay index, spectral index) of the optical afterglows of intermediate and long GRBs. The GRBs were chosen from the sample used in Veres et al., ApJ, 725, pp. 1955-1964, 2010. Both data set of the long and intermediate GRB afterglows consist the same number of afterglows, and the redshift distributions are the same as well. The afterglow data was taken from the Swift UVOT archive system, and the data reduction was carried out using the Heasoft, version 6.11.
