Abstract

The infrared emission from interstellar grains heated by a supernova in eruption is investigated. The dependence of the emission on various physical parameters, such as the depth of the supernova into the dust plane of the parent galaxy, the inclination of the galaxy to the line-of-sight, are investigated. The possibility of detecting this emission is discussed. The prospects are hopeful as far as cryogenically-cooled instruments in Earth orbit are concerned.
