Title: LCO follow-up of stripped-envelope supernovae discovered by the Zwicky Transient Facility

Abstract: We propose to photometrically characterize the population of stripped-envelope supernovae (SESNe) discovered by the Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF) during science commissioning and the first semester of operations in 2018. The dataset will be used, in combination with semi- analytical and/or hydrodynamical modeling, in order to understand the nature of the progenitor stars that give rise to SESNe. In particular, we propose to collect $u$-band photometry around maximum light of a large amount of objects, which will allow us to constrain the host extinction and bolometric luminosity in an unprecedented way.
