      © 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

      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 ...
    • Effects of the explosion asymmetry and viewing angle on the Type Ia supernova colour and luminosity calibration 

      Maeda, Keiichi; Leloudas, Giorgos; Taubenberger, Stefan; Stritzinger, Maximilian; Sollerman, Jesper; Elias Rosa, Nancy; Benetti, Stefano; Hamuy Wackenhut, Mario; Folatelli, Gastón; Mazzali, Paolo (2011)
      Phenomenological relations exist between the peak luminosity and other observables of type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) that allow one to standardize their peak luminosities. However, several issues are yet to be clarified: ...
    • Evolving into a remnant: optical observations of SN 1978K at three decades 

      Kuncarayakti, Hanindyo; Maeda, Keiichi; Anderson, J. P.; Hamuy Wackenhut, Mario; Nomoto, K.; Galbany, Lluis; Doi, M. (Oxford Univ Press, 2016)
      We present new optical observations of the supernova SN 1978K, obtained in 2007 and 2014 with the Very Large Telescope. We discover that the supernova has not faded significantly, even more than three decades after its ...
    • Nebular phase observations of the type-Ib supernova iPTF13bvn favour a binary progenitor 

      Kuncarayakti, Hanindyo; Maeda, Keiichi; Bersten, Melina Cecilia; Folatelli, Gastón; Morrell, Nidia; Hsiao, Eric; González Gaitán, Santiago; Anderson, J. P.; Hamuy Wackenhut, Mario; De Jaeger, Thomas; Gutiérrez, C. P.; Kawabata, K. S. (EDP Sciences, 2015)
      Aims. We present and analyse late-time observations of the Type-Ib supernova with possible pre-supernova progenitor detection, iPTF13bvn, which were done similar to 300 days after the explosion. We discuss them in the ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Type IIb Supernova 2013df Entering Into An Interaction Phase: A Link Between The Progenitor And The Mass Loss

      We report the late-time evolution of Type IIb supernova (SN IIb) 2013df. SN 2013df showed a dramatic change in its spectral features at similar to 1 yr after the explosion. Early on it showed typical characteristics shared ...
    • UNBURNED MATERIAL IN THE EJECTA OF TYPE Ia SUPERNOVAE
