The tool in public_snlite.tbz generates simple radioactive decay driven models of late-time supernova light curves. The tool is set to reproduce this SN 1987A figure:
SN 1987A late time

The tool in public_lc1a.tbz generates simple supernova type 1a light curves. The tool is set to reproduce SN 1992bc:
SN 1992bg ; 56Ni
SN 1992bc ; rise times
SN 1992bg ; gamma escape
SN 1992bc ; positron escape

For images on gamma-ray emission from radioactive isotopes, peek at the 26Al and 60Fe, 44Ti, 60Co and 56Ni, and other radioactivities.
