Abstract

We show that turbulence in core collapse supernovae (CCSNe) which has been shown recently to ease shock revival might also lead to the formation of intermittent thick accretion disks, or accretion belts, around the newly born neutron star (NS). The accretion morphology is such that two low density funnels are formed along the polar directions. The disks then are likely to launch jets with a varying axis direction, i.e., jittering jets, through the two opposite funnels. The energy contribution of jets in this jittering-jets mechanism might result in an explosion energy of , even without reviving the stalled shock. We strengthen the jittering-jets mechanism as a possible explosion mechanism of CCSNe.
