We present spectroscopic and photometric data of a sample of Type II plateau Supernovae, covering a wide range of properties from the 56Ni rich, high luminosity events (e.g. SN 1992am) to the low-luminosity, 56Ni poor SNe (e.g. SN 1997D). We provide an observational framework to analyze correlations among observational data, physical parameters and progenitors characteristics of Type II supernovae.

Spectral analysis of type II supernovae
Abstract We present spectroscopic analysis of 63 type II supernovae. We present preliminary results on correlations between spectroscopic and photometric properties, focusing on light-curve decline
Photometric and spectroscopic properties of Type II-P supernovae
We study a sample of 23 Type II Plateau supernovae (SNe II-P), all observed with the same set of instruments. Analysis of their photometric evolution confirms that their typical plateau duration is
Hα Spectral Diversity of Type II Supernovae: Correlations with Photometric Properties
We present a spectroscopic analysis of the H{sub α} profiles of hydrogen-rich Type II supernovae. A total of 52 Type II supernovae having well-sampled optical light curves and spectral sequences were
SN 2005cs in M51 – I. The first month of evolution of a subluminous SN II plateau
Early-time optical observations of supernova (SN) 2005cs in the Whirlpool Galaxy (M51) are reported. Photometric data suggest that SN 2005cs is a moderately underluminous Type II plateau SN (SN IIP).


Peculiar, low-luminosity Type II supernovae: low-energy explosions in massive progenitors?
A number of supernovae, classified as Type II, show remarkably peculiar properties such as an extremely low expansion velocity and an extraordinarily small amount of 5 6 Ni in the ejecta. We present
The fading of supernova 1997D
We present a new set of spectroscopic and photometric data extending the observations of SN 1997D to over 400 d after the explosion. These observations confirm the peculiar properties of SN 1997D,
Low‐luminosity Type II supernovae: spectroscopic and photometric evolution
In this paper we present spectroscopic and photometric observations for four core-collapsed supernovae (SNe), namely SNe 1994N, 1999br, 1999eu and 2001dc. Together with SN 1997D, we show that they
Observed and Physical Properties of Core-Collapse Supernovae
I use photometry and spectroscopy data for 24 Type II plateau supernovae (SNe IIP) to examine their observed and physical properties. This data set shows that these objects encompass a wide range of
Explosion energies, nickel masses and distances of Type II plateau supernovae
The hydrodynamical modelling of Type II plateau supernova (SNIIP) light curves predicts a correlation between three observable parameters (plateau duration, absolute magnitude and photospheric
Photometry and Spectroscopy of the Type IIP SN 1999em from Outburst to Dust Formation
We present photometry and spectra of the Type IIP supernova 1999em in NGC 1637 from several days after the outburst till day 642. The radioactive tail of the recovered bolometric light curve of SN
The expanding photosphere method applied to SN 1992am AT cz = 14 600 km/s
We present photometry and spectroscopy of Supernova (SN) 1992am for five months following its discovery by the Calan Cerro-Tololo Inter-American Observatory (CTIO) SN search. These data show SN
The Distance to SN 1999em in NGC 1637 from the Expanding Photosphere Method
ABSTRACT We present 30 optical spectra and 49 photometric epochs sampling the first 517 days after discovery of supernova (SN) 1999em and derive its distance through the expanding photosphere method
Maps of Dust Infrared Emission for Use in Estimation of Reddening and Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation Foregrounds
We present a full-sky 100 μm map that is a reprocessed composite of the COBE/DIRBE and IRAS/ISSA maps, with the zodiacal foreground and confirmed point sources removed. Before using the ISSA maps, we
