10. SNe and SNRs with circumstellar interactions
About 10 Type Ia SNRs have been identified in the Large Magellanic Cloud. We have obtained Hubble Space Telescope (HST) H-alpha images for 9 of these SNRs. These high-resolution images show detailed structure of the SNRs. Several of them show knots indicating circumstellar interactions. This poster will present HST images of 9 Type Ia SNRs and discuss their physical structures.
