Abstract :

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.
