Abstract. The Be X-ray binary A 0535+26 was observed by OSSE on CGRO during a giant outburst in February 1994. Grove et al. (1995) detected a cyclotron absorption feature at 110 keV in the pulse phase averaged spectrum. In this paper, we present the analysis of the dependence of the pulse shape on energy and intensity, and discuss the development of the pulse averaged spectral shape during the observation.
