  journal={The Astrophysical Journal},
We conduct three-dimensional hydrodynamical simulations to explore the interaction of jets that a neutron star (NS) companion to a type Ic or type Ib core collapse supernova (CCSN) launches few hours after explosion with the ejecta of the CCSN. We assume that a NS companion at 5Ro from the exploding star accretes mass from the slower inner ejecta through an accretion disk, and that the disk launches two opposite jets. Although the energy of the jets is only about one per cent of the total… Expand

Special Supernova Signature from BH–NS/BH Progenitor Systems
The gravitational-wave detection by the LIGO-Virgo scientific collaboration shows that the black hole and neutron star (BH-NS) or BH-BH systems with a BH mass of tens of solar masses widely exist inExpand
Minutes-delayed Jets from a Neutron Star Companion in Core-collapse Supernovae
I study cases where a neutron star (NS; or a black hole) companion to a type Ib or type Ic (stripped-envelope) core collapse supernova (CCSN) accretes mass from the explosion ejecta and launches jetsExpand


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
Common envelope jets supernova (CEJSN) impostors resulting from a neutron star companion
We propose a new type of repeating transient outburst initiated by a neutron star (NS) entering the envelope of an evolved massive star, accreting envelope material and subsequently launching jetsExpand
Ejecting the envelope of red supergiant stars with jets launched by an inspiraling neutron star
We study the properties of jets launched by a neutron star spiralling inside the envelope and core of a red supergiant. We propose that Thorne-Zytkow objects (TZO) are unlikely to be formed viaExpand
The Common Envelope Jet Supernova (CEJSN) r-process Scenario
We study r-process feasibility inside jets launched by a cold neutron star (NS) spiralling-in inside the core of a giant star, and find that such common envelope jets supernova events might be aExpand
Explosions Driven by the Coalescence of a Compact Object with the Core of a Massive-star Companion inside a Common Envelope: Circumstellar Properties, Light Curves, and Population Statistics
We model explosions driven by the coalescence of a black hole or neutron star with the core of its massive-star companion. Upon entering a common envelope phase, a compact object may spiral all theExpand
Three-dimensional Hydrodynamic Simulations of Supernova Ejecta with a Central Energy Source
We present the results of three-dimensional special relativistic hydrodynamic simulations of supernova ejecta with a powerful central energy source. We assume spherical supernova ejecta freelyExpand
Disc formation and jet inclination effects in common envelopes
The evolution and physics of the common envelope (CE) phase are still not well understood. Jets launched from a compact object during this stage may define the evolutionary outcome of the binaryExpand
Explaining iPTF14hls as a common-envelope jets supernova
We propose a common envelope jets supernova scenario for the enigmatic supernova iPTF14hls where a neutron star that spirals-in inside the envelope of a massive giant star accretes mass and launchesExpand
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
Accretion from a clumpy massive-star wind in supergiant X-ray binaries
Supergiant X-ray Binaries (SgXB) host a compact object, often a neutron star (NS), orbiting an evolved O/B star. Mass transfer proceeds through the intense line-driven wind of the stellar donor, aExpand
