      © 2017 The Authors. We report on the detection of a remarkable new fast high-energy transient found in the Chandra Deep Field-South, robustly associated with a faint (mR = 27.5mag, zph ~2.2) host in the CANDELS survey. The ...
    • A blue point source at the location of supernova 2011DH 

      Folatelli, Gastón; Bersten, Melina C.; Benvenuto, Omar; Van Dyk, Schuyler D.; Kuncarayakti, Hanindyo; Maeda, Keiichi; Nozawa, Takaya; Nomoto, Ken’ichi; Hamuy Wackenhut, Mario; Quimby, Robert M. (The American Astronomical Society, 2014-10-01)
      We present Hubble Space Telescope (HST) observations of the field of the Type IIb supernova (SN) 2011dh in M51 performed at ≈1161 rest-frame days after explosion using the Wide Field Camera 3 and near-UV filters F225W ...
    • Disappearance of the progenitor of supernova iptf13bvn 

      Folatelli, Gastón; Van Dyk, Schuyler D.; Kuncarayakti, Hanindyo; Maeda, Keiichi; Bersten, Melina C.; Nomoto, Ken'ichi; Pignata Libralato, Giuliano; Hamuy Wackenhut, Mario; Quimby, Robert M.; Zheng, WeiKang; Filippenko, Alexei V.; Clubb, Kelsey I.; Smith, Nathan; Elias Rosa, Nancy; Foley, Ryan J.; Miller, Adam A. (IOP Publishing, 2016)
      Supernova (SN) iPTF13bvn in NGC 5806 was the first Type Ib SN to have been tentatively associated with a progenitor in pre-explosion images. We performed deep ultraviolet (UV) and optical Hubble Space Telescope observations ...
    • The outermost ejecta of Type Ia supernovae 

      Tanaka, Masaomi; Mazzali, Paolo; Benetti, Stefano; Nomoto, Ken’ichi; Elias-Rosa, Nancy; Kotak, Rubina; Pignata Libralato, Giuliano; Stanishev, Vallery; Hachinger, Stephan (UNIV CHICAGO PRESS, 2008-04-10)
      The properties of the highest velocity ejecta of normal Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) are studied via models of very early optical spectra of six SNe. At epochs earlier than 1 week before maximum, SNe with a rapidly evolving ...
    • The Progenitor of the Type IIb SN 2008ax Revisited 

      Folatelli, Gastón; Bersten, Melina C.; Kuncarayakti, Hanindyo; Benvenuto, Omar G.; Maeda, Keiichi; Nomoto, Ken’ichi (IOP Publishing, 2015)
      Hubble Space Telescope observations of the site of the supernova (SN) SN 2008ax obtained in 2011 and 2013 reveal that the possible progenitor object detected in pre-explosion images was in fact multiple. Four point sources ...
    • Rapidly Rising Transients from the Subaru Hyper Suprime-Cam Transient Survey 

      Tanaka, Masaomi; Tominaga, Nozomu; Morokuma, Tomoki; Yasuda, Naoki; Furusawa, Hisanori; Baklanov, Petr; Blinnikov, Sergei; Moriya, Takashi; Doi, Mamoru; Jiang, Ji-An; Kato, Takahiro; Kikuchi, Yuki; Kuncarayakti, Hanindyo; Nagao, Tohru; Nomoto, Ken’ichi; Taniguchi, Yuki (IOP, 2016)
      We present rapidly rising transients discovered by a high-cadence transient survey with the Subaru telescope and Hyper Suprime-Cam. We discovered five transients at z=0.384–0.821, showing a rate of rise faster than 1 ...
    • SN 2003bg: A BROAD-LINED TYPE IIb SUPERNOVA WITH HYDROGEN 

      Mazzali, Paolo; Deng, Jinsong; Hamuy Wackenhut, Mario; Nomoto, Ken’ichi (IOP PUBLISHING LTD, DIRAC HOUSE, TEMPLE BACK, 2009-10-01)
      Models for the spectra and the light curve (LC), in the photospheric as well as in the late nebular phase, are used to infer the properties of the very radio-bright, broad-lined type IIb supernova (SN) 2003bg. Consistent ...
    • Supernova 2010as: the lowest-velocity member of a family of flat-velocity type IIb supernovae 

      Folatelli, Gastón; Bersten, Melina C.; Kuncarayakti, Hanindyo; Olivares Estay, Felipe; Anderson, Joseph P.; Holmbo, Simon; Maeda, Keiichi; Morrell, Nidia; Nomoto, Ken’ichi; Pignata Libralato, Giuliano; Stritzinger, Maximilian; Contreras, Carlos; Forster, Francisco; Hamuy Wackenhut, Mario; Phillips, Mark M.; Prieto, José Luis; Valenti, Stefano; Afonso, Paulo; Altenmuller, Konrad; Elliott, Jonny; Greiner, Jochen; Updike, Adria; Haislip, Joshua B.; LaCluyze, Aaron P.; Moore, Justin P.; Reichart, Daniel E. (The American Astronomical Society, 2014-09-01)
      We present extensive optical and near-infrared photometric and spectroscopic observations of the stripped-envelope supernova SN 2010as. Spectroscopic peculiarities such as initially weak helium features and low ...
    • UNBURNED MATERIAL IN THE EJECTA OF TYPE Ia SUPERNOVAE

M.; Morrell, Nidia; Tanaka, Masaomi; Maeda, Keiichi; Nomoto, Ken’ichi; Stritzinger, Maximilian; Burns, Christopher R.; Hamuy Wackenhut, Mario; Mazzali, Paolo; Boldt, Luis; Campillay, Abdo; Contreras, Carlos; González Tagle, Sergio; Roth, Miguel; Salgado, Francisco; Freedman, W. L.; Madore, Barry F.; Persson, S. E.; Suntzeff, Nicholas B. (2012-01-20)
      The presence of unburned material in the ejecta of normal Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) is investigated using early-time spectroscopy obtained by the Carnegie Supernova Project. The tell-tale signature of pristine material from ...
