Maurer, Immanuel; Jerkstrand, A; Mazzali, Paolo A; Taubenberger, Stefano; Hachinger, S; Kromer, M; Sim, Stuart A; Hillebrandt, Wolfgang


The interpretation of supernova (SN) spectra is essential for deriving SN ejecta properties such as density and composition, which in turn can tell us about their progenitors and the explosion mechanism. A very large number of atomic processes are important for spectrum formation. Several tools for calculating SN spectra exist, but they mainly focus on the very early or late epochs. The intermediate phase, which requires a non-local thermodynamic equilibrium (NLTE) treatment of radiation...[Show more]
