Summary

At late times, the energy deposition in the ejecta of type Ia supernovae is dominated by the slowing of energetic positrons produced in 56Co → 56Fe decays. Through comparisons of simulations of energy deposition in SN Ia models with observed light curves from supernovae, we study the positron transport and thus the magnetic fields of SNe Ia. In this paper, we summarize the current status of these investigations, emphasizing the observations made of two recent SNe Ia, 1999by and 2000cx.
