Radio Supernova remnants: Echoes of stellar explosions

Supernova remnants (SNRs), the relics of stellar explosions, are among the most significant sources of non-thermal radio emission in the universe. As the shock fronts created by the supernova expand, they compress and distort the ambient matter and magnetic fields, producing energetic particles via diffusive shock acceleration. This talk undertakes a journey to uncover the multifaceted nature of SNRs through the lens of radio astronomy. Imaging and spectral analysis at these wavelengths are key tools for gaining valuable insights into the evolutionary status of these extraordinary sources, aiding in cataloging and understanding of the Galactic SNR population.
