White dwarf deflagrations for Type Iax supernovae: Polarisation signatures from the explosion and companion interaction

27 Feb 2020 Bulla M. Liu Z. -W. Roepke F. K. Sim S. A. Fink M. Kromer M. Pakmor R. Seitenzahl I. R.

Growing evidence suggests that Type Iax supernovae might be the result of thermonuclear deflagrations of Chandrasekhar-mass white dwarfs in binary systems. We carry out Monte Carlo radiative transfer simulations and predict spectropolarimetric features originating from the supernova explosion and subsequent ejecta interaction with the companion star...
