From Dreams to Future Discoveries: Advancing Core-Collapse Supernova Science

The advent of sensitive gravitational wave (GW) detectors, coupled with wide-field, high cadence optical time-domain surveys, raises the possibility of the first joint GW-electromagnetic (EM) detections of core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe). For targeted searches of GWs from CCSNe, the sensitivity of the search is increased by restricting the relevant time interval, defined as the GW search window (GSW). Optical observations, from either ground based telescopes or space-based observatories such as Kepler and the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), can be used to minimize the uncertainties associated with the GSW. In this talk, I will present new GSWs for previous Type II SNe that occurred in past advanced observing runs of LIGO/Virgo. I will then use these examples to demonstrate the benefits of combining GW-EM CCSN observations.
