We present observations of the Type Ia supernova SN 2002er during the brightening phase. The observations were performed with the Potsdam Multi Aperture Spectrophotometer (PMAS) integral field instrument. Due to the $8\arcsec\times8\arcsec$ field of view of the spectrograph an accurate background subtraction was possible. Results from analyses of the evolution of absorption features in comparisons with other SNe show that SN 2002er is a fairly bright Type Ia supernova with a peak brightness of…

Photometric observations of the Type Ia SN 2002er in UGC 10743
Extensive light and colour curves for the Type Ia supernova SN 2002er are presented as part of the European Supernova Collaboration. We have collected UBV RI photometry from ten different telescopes
Resolving stellar populations with integral field spectroscopy
High-performance instruments at large ground-based telescopes have made integral field spectroscopy (IFS) a powerful tool for the study of extended objects such as galaxies, nebulae, or even larger
Spectrophotometry of Planetary Nebulae in the Bulge of M31
We introduce crowded-field integral field (3D) spectrophotometry as a useful technique for the study of resolved stellar populations in nearby galaxies. The spectroscopy of individual extragalactic
Identifying lensing by substructure. I. Cusp lenses
The inability of standard models to explain the flux ratios in many 4-image gravitational lenses has been cited as evidence for significant small-scale structure in lens galaxies. That claim has
When the source in a four-image gravitational lens system lies sufficiently close to a fold caustic, two of the lensed images lie very close together. If the lens potential is smooth on the scale of
PMAS : The potsdam multi-aperture spectrophotometer. I. Design, manufacture, and performance
We describe the design, manufacture, commissioning, and performance of PMAS, the Potsdam Multi-Aperture Spectrophotometer. PMAS is a dedicated integral field spectrophotometer optimized to cover the


SN 1992A : ultraviolet and optical studies based on HST, IUE and CTIO observations
The Type Ia supernova SN 1992A in the SO galaxy NGC 1380 was observed as a target of opportunity by the International Ultrauiolet Explorer (IUE) and with great alacrity by the Hubble Space Telescope
Differences among expansion velocities of type Ia supernovae
Spectroscopic data are used to show that observational differences between Type Ia supernovae do exist. Observed wavelengths of the absorption feature produced by the unresolved red Si II doublet,
Evidence for a Spectroscopic Sequence among Type Ia Supernovae
In this Letter we present evidence for a spectral sequence among Type Ia supernovae (SN Ia's). The sequence is based on the systematic variation of several features seen in the near-maximum light
Optical spectra of supernovae
The temporal evolution of the optical spectra of various types of supernovae (SNe) is illustrated, in part to aid observers classifying supernova candidates. Type II SNe are defined by the presence
The Absolute Luminosities of the Calan/Tololo Type Ia Supernovae
We examine the absolute luminosities of 29 SNe Ia in the Calan/Tololo survey. We confirm a relation between the peak luminosity of the SNe and the decline rate as measured by the light curve, as
The type la supernova SN 1994D in NGC 4526 was extensively observed as a target of opportunity at ESO. In this paper, we present and discuss the UBVRI photometry and the spectra collected during this
Type Ia Supernovae
Summary. Type Ia Supernovae are in many aspects still enigmatic objects. Their observational and theoretical exploration is in full swing, but we still have plenty to learn about these
Observational Evidence from Supernovae for an Accelerating Universe and a Cosmological Constant
We present spectral and photometric observations of 10 Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) in the redshift range 0.16 " z " 0.62. The luminosity distances of these objects are determined by methods that
Metallicity Effects in Non-LTE Model Atmospheres of Type Ia Supernovae
We have calculated a grid of photospheric phase atmospheres of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) with metallicities from 10 times to 1/30 the solar metallicity in the C+O layer of the deflagration model,

Absolute magnitudes in the B, V, and I bands are derived for nine well-observed Type Ia supernovae, using host galaxy distances estimated via the surface brightness fluctuations or Tully-Fisher
