Infrared spectroscopy of Supernovae
Dr. Jason Spyromilio (ESO)
2nd Floor Seminar Room
The nucleosynthetic yield of type Ia supernovae is an indicator of the explosion mechanism and the properties of the progenitor. Following a brief historical overview of infrared spectroscopy of SNe, the use of nebular spectra to determine progenitor scenarios of type Ia supernovae will be discussed.
