Abstract [en]

In spite of extensive research over the past decades, a complete physical picture of the origin of the prompt gamma-ray burst emission is still lacking. During recent years, evidence has been accumulating that the jet photosphere plays an important role. In this paper we summarize the lessons learned from Fermi observations regarding the behavior of the photosphere and discuss why photospheric emission does not necessarily appear as blackbody radiation. We concentrate on two strong and important bursts, GRB 090902B and GRB 110721A, which serve as examples of the standard appearance photospheric emission may have in gamma-ray burst spectra.
