" Shock breakout survey with Hyper Suprime-Cam "

Nozomu Tominaga

(Konan University)

Shock breakout is the bolometrically brightest phenomenon in supernovae. Although it is theoretically proposed in 1970s and is suggested to be a probe of the high-redshift universe, its observation is difficult due to the short duration and X-ray/ultraviolet-peaked spectra. We had constructed theoretical models of shock breakouts in 2009 and 2011 and demonstrated that the shock breakout can be efficiently detected in optical band with Hyper Suprime-Cam. Thus, we have started the shock breakout survey with Hyper Suprime-Cam from Jul 1-2, 2014. In this talk, I will introduce our survey strategy, transient finding system, and initial results.

Seminars are also held at JAC, CFHT, and IfA.
