    • ESC supernova spectroscopy of non-ESC targets 

      Harutyunyan, A.; Pfahler, P.; Pastorello, A.; Taubenberger, S.; Turatto, M.; Cappellaro, E.; Benetti, Stefano; Elias-Rosa, Nancy; Navasardyan, H.; Valenti, S.; Stanishev, V.; Patat, F.; Riello, M.; Pignata Libralato, Giuliano; Hillebrandt, W. (EDP SCIENCES S A, 2008-09)
      Aims. We present the spectra of 36 supernovae (SNe) of various types, obtained by the European Supernova Collaboration. Because of the spectral classification and the phase determination at their discovery the SNe did not ...
    • On the Source of the Dust Extinction in Type Ia Supernovae and the Discovery of Anomalously Strong Na I Absorption 

      Phillips, M. M.; Simon, Joshua D.; Morrell, Nidia; Burns, Christopher R.; Cox, Nick; Foley, Ryan J.; Karakas, Amanda; Patat, F.; Sternberg, A.; Williams, R.; Gal Yam, Avishay; Hsiao, Eric; Leonard, D.; Persson, Sven; Stritzinger, Maximilian; Thompson, I.; Campillay, Abdo; Contreras, Carlos; Folatelli, Gastón; Freedman, Wendy L.; Hamuy Wackenhut, Mario; Roth, Miguel; Shields, Gregory; Suntzeff, Nicholas B.; Chomiuk, Laura; Ivans, Inese; Madore, Barry; Penprase, B.; Perley, Daniel; Pignata Libralato, Giuliano; Preston, G.; Soderberg, Alicia (The American Astronomical Society, 2013-11-10)
      High-dispersion observations of the Na i D λλ5890, 5896 and K i λλ7665, 7699 interstellar lines, and the diffuse interstellar band at 5780 Å in the spectra of 32 Type Ia supernovae are used as an independent means of ...
    • Optical and infrared observations of SN 2002dj: some possible common properties of fast-expanding Type Ia supernovae 

      Pignata Libralato, Giuliano; Benetti, Stefano; Mazzali, Paolo; Kotak, Rubina; Patat, F.; Meikle, P.; Stehle, M.; Leibundgut, B.; Suntzeff, Nicholas B.; Buson, L. M.; Cappellaro, E.; Clocchiatti, A.; Hamuy Wackenhut, Mario; Maza Sancho, José; Mendez, J.; Ruiz Lapuente, P.; Salvo, M.; Schmidt, Brian P.; Turatto, M.; Hillebrandt, W. (BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, 2008-08-11)
      As part of the European Supernova Collaboration, we obtained extensive photometry and spectroscopy of the Type Ia supernova (SN Ia) SN 2002dj covering epochs from 11 d before to nearly two years after maximum. Detailed ...

J.; Ellison, S.; Frontera, F.; Fruchter, Andrew S.; Greiner, J.; Kawabata, K.; Ledoux, C.; Maeda, K.; Møller, P.; Nicastro, L.; Rol, E.; Starling, R. (NATURE PUBLISHING GROUP, 2006-08-31)
      Long-duration gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are associated with type Ic supernovae(1) that are more luminous than average(2-5) and that eject material at very high velocities. Less-luminous supernovae were not hitherto known to ...
    • A statistical analysis of circumstellar material in Type Ia supernovae 

      Maguire, K.; Sullivan, M.; Patat, F.; Gal-Yam, A.; Hook, I. M.; Dhawan, S.; Howell, D. A.; Mazzali, P.; Nugent, P. E.; Pan, Y. C.; Podsiadlowski, P.; Simon, J.

      A key tracer of the elusive progenitor systems of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) is the detection of narrow blueshifted time-varying Na I D absorption lines, interpreted as evidence of circumstellar material surrounding the ...
