"Infrared supernova remnants in the Large Magellanic Cloud"
Abstract. Supernova remnants (SNRs) are unique places where we can study the physical and chemical evolution of the interstellar medium by SN shocks. In particular, dust processing by shocks can be directly investigated by observing SNRs in IR wavebands. Thanks to its low IR confusion compared to the Milky Way, the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) has a great advantage to study IR emission from SNRs.
I will present the near- to mid-IR study of SNRs using the AKARI and Spitzer data of the LMC as well as a detailed study of LMC SNR N49 with the AKARI NIR spectroscopy in terms of Unidentified Infrared bands, and I will discuss the characteristics of IR SNRs, the comparison with multi-wavelength data, and the IR emission mechanisms.
