Supernova ejecta dust masses

This is a compilation of literature values for dust masses in the ejecta of core-collapse supernovae. The list is not yet complete but is intended to be all-inclusive, so if different authors infer different dust masses from the same data, multiple points will appear on the plot at the relevant epoch. Information about each value can be seen by hovering over points in the plot, and hovering will also indicate other data points for the same object from the same paper if there are any.
