Yvette Cendes (Toronto): Radio Observations of Nearby Intermediate-Aged Supernovae

Seminar: RAL Seminars | November 19 | 3:10-4 p.m. | 501B Campbell Hall

 Yvette Cendes, Toronto

 Radio Astronomy Lab

After the initial flash and bang of a supernova, radio emission can continue for decades as the shockwave interacts with the circumstellar material (CSM) shed by the progenitor star before the explosion. These observations can, in turn, provide key insights into both the explosion mechanism and pre-supernova evolution of the progenitor system, as well as probe the transition from supernova to...   More >
