We show that turbulence in core collapse supernovae (CCSNe) which has been shown recently to ease shock revival might also lead to the formation of intermittent thick accretion disks, or accretion belts, around the newly born neutron star (NS). The accretion morphology is such that two low density funnels are formed along the polar directions. The disks then are likely to launch jets with a varying axis direction, i.e., jittering-jets, through the two opposite funnels. The energy contribution… Expand

Launching jets from accretion belts
We propose that sub-Keplerian accretion belts around stars might launch jets. The sub-Keplerian inflow does not form a rotationally supported accretion disk, but it rather reaches the accretingExpand
Explaining the most energetic supernovae with an inefficient jet-feedback mechanism
We suggest that the energetic radiation from core-collapse super-energetic supernovae (SESNe) is due to a long lasting accretion process onto the newly born neutron star (NS), resulting from anExpand
Low-energy core-collapse supernovae in the frame of the jittering jets explosion mechanism
We relate the pre-explosion binding energy of the ejecta of core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe) of stars with masses in the lower range of CCSNe and the location of the convection zones in theExpand
The two promising scenarios to explode core collapse supernovae
I compare to each other what I consider to be the two most promising scenarios to explode core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe). Both are based on the negative jet feedback mechanism (JFM). In theExpand
Core collapse supernova remnants with ears
We study the morphologies of core collapse supernova remnants (CCSNRs) and find that about third of CCSNRs in our sample have two opposite `ears' protruding from their main shell. We assume that theExpand
The rotational shear in pre-collapse cores of massive stars
We evolve stellar models to study the rotational profiles of the pre-explosion cores of single massive stars that are progenitors of core collapse supernovae (CCSNe), and find large rotational shearExpand
Amplifying magnetic fields of a newly born neutron star by stochastic angular momentum accretion in core collapse supernovae
I present a novel mechanism to boost magnetic field amplification of newly born neutron stars in core collapse supernovae. In this mechanism, that operates in the jittering jets explosion mechanismExpand
Angular momentum fluctuations in the convective helium shell of massive stars
We find significant fluctuations of angular momentum within the convective helium shell of a pre-collapse massive star - a core-collapse supernova progenitor - which may facilitate the formation ofExpand
Operation of the jet feedback mechanism (JFM) in intermediate luminosity optical transients (ILOTs)
We follow the premise that most intermediate luminosity optical transients (ILOTs) are powered by rapid mass accretion onto a main sequence star, and study the effects of jets launched by anExpand
Emission peaks in the light curve of core collapse supernovae by late jets
We build a toy model where the central object, i.e., a newly born neutron star or a black hole, launches jets at late times and show that these jets might account for peaks in the light curve of someExpand


We conduct a series of numerical experiments into the nature of three-dimensional (3D) hydrodynamics in the postbounce stalled-shock phase of core-collapse supernovae using 3D general-relativisticExpand
The development of explosions in axisymmetric ab initio core-collapse supernova simulations of 12–25 M⊙ stars
We present four ab initio axisymmetric core-collapse supernova simulations for 12, 15, 20, and 25 $M_\odot$ progenitors. All of the simulations yield explosions and have been evolved for at least 1.2Expand
