Core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe) produce large (& 0.1 M ) masses of dust, and are potentially the primary source of dust in the Universe, but much of this dust may be destroyed before reaching the interstellar medium. Cassiopeia A (Cas A) is the only supernova remnant where an observational measurement of the dust destruction efficiency in the reverse shock is possible at present. We determine the preand post-shock dust masses in Cas A using a substantially improved dust emission model. In our…
