Description

We revisit the evidence for the contribution of the long-lived radioactive nuclides [superscript 44]Ti, [superscript 55]Fe, [superscript 56]Co, [superscript 57]Co, and [superscript 60]Co to the UVOIR light curve of SN

We revisit the evidence for the contribution of the long-lived radioactive nuclides [superscript 44]Ti, [superscript 55]Fe, [superscript 56]Co, [superscript 57]Co, and [superscript 60]Co to the UVOIR light curve of SN 1987A. We show that the V-band luminosity constitutes a roughly constant fraction of the bolometric luminosity between 900 and 1900 days, and we obtain an approximate bolometric light curve out to 4334 days by scaling the late time V-band data by a constant factor where no bolometric light curve data is available.
