Carnegie Supernova Project, Low-Z
Las Campanas Observatory

During the next 5 years the Low-Z Carnegie Supernova Project aims to obtain high-quality gap-free optical/NIR light-curves and spectro-photometry of ~220 nearby Type Ia, II, and Ibc supernovae, with the purpose to establish and refine methods for obtaining distances (study of local galaxy flows, a reddening-free determination of the Hubble constant, provide a fundamental reference for observations of high-z supernovae to solve for w,w'?; gain insight into the progenitors and explosion mechanism of supernovae
