[6.11] Supernova Gamma-Ray Tools Online

D. Chappell, M. Leising (Clemson University)

A major objective of NASA's Advanced Compton Telescope is the study of the physics of supernovae via their gamma-ray spectra. The requirements for achieving this objective are currently being developed. To aid this effort, we have developed online tools for the calculation and display of gamma-ray spectra of supernova models. The user can choose among a menu of models, input time(s), distance(s), and instrument characteristics (such as sensitivity and energy resolution) and plot or output simulated spectra. We illustrate the use of these tools for both actual and hypothetical instruments and supernovae.

This work is supported by NASA via subcontract from the University of California.
