Ultraviolet light from superluminous supernova key to revealing explosion mechanism
7-September-2017

An international team of researchers led by Kavli IPMU's Alexey Tolstov and Ken'ichi Nomoto have discovered a way to use UV light from superluminous supernovae to uncover its explosion mechanism, and used it to identify Gaia16apd as a shock-interacting supernova, reports a new study.
