2010ApJS..190..418G Results of the Lick Observatory Supernova Search Follow-up Photometry Program: BVRI Light Curves of 165 Type Ia Supernovae Ganeshalingam, Mohan; Li, Weidong; Filippenko, Alexei V.; Anderson, Carmen; Foster, Griffin; Gates, Elinor L.; Griffith, Christopher V.; Grigsby, Bryant J.; Joubert, Niels; Leja, Joel; Lowe, Thomas B.; Macomber, Brent; Pritchard, Tyler; Thrasher, Patrick; Winslow, Dustin Abstract. We present BVRI light curves of 165 Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) from the Lick Observatory Supernova Search follow-up photometry program from 1998 through 2008. Our light curves are typically well sampled (cadence of 3-4 days) with an average of 21 photometry epochs. We describe our monitoring campaign and the photometry reduction pipeline that we have developed. Comparing our data set to that of Hicken et al., with which we have 69 overlapping supernovae (SNe), we find that as an ensemble the photometry is consistent, with only small overall systematic differences, although individual SNe may differ by as much as 0.1 mag, and occasionally even more. Such disagreement in specific cases can have significant implications for combining future large data sets. We present an analysis of our light curves which includes template fits of light-curve shape parameters useful for calibrating SNe Ia as distance indicators. Assuming the B - V color of SNe Ia at 35 days past maximum light can be presented as the convolution of an intrinsic Gaussian component and a decaying exponential attributed to host-galaxy reddening, we derive an intrinsic scatter of {sigma} = 0.076 +/- 0.019 mag, consistent with the Lira-Phillips law. This is the first of two papers, the second of which will present a cosmological analysis of the data presented herein. Key words: galaxies: distances and redshifts, supernovae: general
