Could it be possible to detect planets from stars that went supernova through the resulting nebula shape?

The escape speed of a big planet like Jupiter is about 60 km/s. The speed of the ejecta from a supernova explosion is something like $10^4$ km/s. i.e. Jupiter would have little discernable ...

Supernova remnant spectral lines

In addition to AtomDB, another useful resource is the x-ray data booklet provided by LBNL. Specifically, this table has some common x-ray emission lines. My recommendation would be to fit the spectrum ...

Supernova remnant spectral lines

I would go to the AtomDB and then look for lines with high emissivity in a specific wavelength region. So under "List lines in wavelength region:" select a not too wide energy band and play ...
