Radio and X-ray data shed light on the progenitor system of SN2011fe

January 8, 2012

We have recently submitted two manuscripts to ApJ describing our EVLA, Swift, and Chandra observations of the Type Ia SN2011fe, representing the deepest constraints on the non-thermal emission from such an explosion to date.  We use these data to characterize the properties of the circumbinary environment surrounding the progenitor star and constrain the nature of the putative donor star.  Check out the Publications page for details.

Recent Publications on SN2011dh

January 8, 2012

We have recently submitted three manuscripts to ApJ on the nearby Type IIb SN2011dh, reporting panchromatic data from radio telescopes (EVLA, VLBA), mm-band facilities (SMA, CARMA), X-ray satellites (Swift, Chandra), and gamma-ray telescopes (IPN, MAXI).  Check out the Publications page for details and the Dataverse for access to the data files.
