Supernova (SN) 2008D/XRT 080109 is considered to be the only direct detection of a shock breakout from a regular SN to date. While a breakout interpretation was favored by several papers, inconsistencies remain between the observations and current SN shock breakout theory. Most notably, the duration of the luminous X-ray pulse is considerably longer than expected for a spherical breakout through the surface of a type Ibc SN progenitor, and the X-ray radiation features, mainly its flat spectrum… 

X-Ray Light Curve and Spectra of Shock Breakout in a Wind

We investigate the properties of X-ray emission from shock breakout of a supernova in a stellar wind. We consider a simple model describing aspherical explosions, in which the shock front with an

RELATIVISTIC SUPERNOVAE HAVE SHORTER-LIVED CENTRAL ENGINES OR MORE EXTENDED PROGENITORS: THE CASE OF SN 2012ap

Deep, late-time X-ray observations of the relativistic, engine-driven, type Ic SN 2012ap allow us to probe the nearby environment of the explosion and reveal the unique properties of relativistic

Progenitor constraints for core-collapse supernovae from Chandra X-ray observations

The progenitors of hydrogen-poor core-collapse supernovae (SNe) of types Ib, Ic and IIb are believed to have shed their outer hydrogen envelopes either by extremely strong stellar winds,

Ejection of the Massive Hydrogen-rich Envelope Timed with the Collapse of the Stripped SN 2014C

This analysis identifies SN 2014C-like signatures in ~10% of SNe, reasonably consistent with the expectation from the theory of recent envelope ejection due to binary evolution if the ejected material can survive in the close environment for 103-104 years.

Properties of X-ray emission of an aspherical shock breakout

Abstract We investigate the relation between the emission properties of supernova shock breakout in the circumstellar matter (CSM) and the behavior of the shock. Using a Monte-Carlo method, we

GALEX DETECTION OF SHOCK BREAKOUT IN TYPE IIP SUPERNOVA PS1-13arp: IMPLICATIONS FOR THE PROGENITOR STAR WIND

We present the GALEX detection of a UV burst at the time of explosion of an optically normal supernova (SN) IIP (PS1-13arp) from the Pan-STARRS1 survey at z = 0.1665. The temperature and luminosity

The Onset of Cosmic Ray Acceleration at Supernovae: From Shock Breakout to the First Decades

We demonstrate, for the first time, that CR acceleration can start significantly before shock breakout for some supernovae surrounded with optically thick winds. Diffusive shock acceleration notably

Shock breakout theory

The earliest supernova (SN) emission is produced when the optical depth of the plasma lying ahead of the shock, which ejects the envelope, drops below c/v, where v is the shock velocity. This

Collisionless shock formation and X-ray emission around supernova shock breakout

We study analytically and numerically the formation of the collisionless shock around supernova shock breakout. Following core collapse, a radiation-dominated shock travels through the supernova

A UNIFIED PICTURE FOR LOW-LUMINOSITY AND LONG GAMMA-RAY BURSTS BASED ON THE EXTENDED PROGENITOR OF llGRB 060218/SN 2006AJ

The relation between long gamma ray bursts (LGRBs) and low-luminosity GRBs (llGRBs) is a long standing puzzle—on one hand their high energy emission properties are fundamentally different, implying a

Shock Breakout Emission from a Type Ib/c Supernova: XRT 080109/SN 2008D

The X-ray transient 080109, associated with SN 2008D, can be attributed to the shock breakout emission from a normal Type Ib/c supernova. If the observed emission is interpreted as thermal emission,

OPTICAL TO X-RAY SUPERNOVA LIGHT CURVES FOLLOWING SHOCK BREAKOUT THROUGH A THICK WIND

Recent supernova (SN) observations have motivated renewed interest in SN shock breakouts from stars surrounded by thick winds. In such events the interaction with the wind powers the observed

Supernova shock breakout through a wind

The breakout of a supernova shock wave through the progenitor star's outer envelope is expected to appear as an X-ray flash. However, if the supernova explodes inside an optically thick wind, the

Early Supernovae Light Curves Following the Shock Breakout

The first light from a supernova (SN) emerges once the SN shock breaks out of the stellar surface. The first light, typically a UV or X-ray flash, is followed by a broken power-law decay of the

Circumstellar Emission from Type Ib and Ic Supernovae

The presumed Wolf-Rayet star progenitors of Type Ib/c supernovae have fast, low-density winds, and the shock waves generated by the supernova interaction with the wind are not expected to be

We present extensive early photometric (ultraviolet through near-infrared) and spectroscopic (optical and near-infrared) data on supernova (SN) 2008D as well as X-ray data analysis on the associated

The X-ray transient 080109 in NGC 2770 : an X-ray flash associated with a normal core-collapse supernova

Although it is generally thought that long-duration gamma-ray bursts (LGRBs) are associated with core-collapse supernovae (SNe), so far only four pairs of GRBs and SNe with firmly established

Aspherical Supernova Shock Breakout And The Observations Of Supernova 2008D

Shock breakout is the earliest, readily observable emission from a core-collapse supernova (SN) explosion. Observing SN shock breakout may yield information about the nature of the SN shock prior to

An extremely luminous X-ray outburst at the birth of a supernova

This work reports the serendipitous discovery of a supernova at the time of the explosion, marked by an extremely luminous X-ray outburst, and attributes the outburst to the ‘break-out’ of the supernova shock wave from the progenitor star, and shows that the inferred rate of such events agrees with that of all core-collapse supernovae.

Shock Breakout from Type Ia Supernova

The mode of explosive burning in Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) remains an outstanding problem. It is generally thought to begin as a subsonic deflagration, but this may transition into a supersonic
