    Abstract

    We present a selection of very well time-sampled, high-quality and homogeneous optical and NIR light curves and optical spectra of 20 nearby (z < 0.03) SN Ib/c from the CfA database, taken with the FLWO, Magellan and Gemini Telescopes. The data begin as early as two weeks before maximum light and go to late times, when the supernovae enter the nebular phase. We discuss general properties of this population of core-collapse supernovae, including their luminosity distribution. Specifically, we present data of SN 2005bf, a unique Type Ib SN, and of SN 2006aj, the most recent spectroscopically-confirmed SN associated with GRB060218, including the only available NIR (JHK s) light curves of this GRB-SN.
