Instability region from pair-creation for different values of the ratio , computed for material composed of 90% oxygen and 10% carbon by mass. For reference, the profile of three nonrotating stripped star models at the onset of PPISNe or PISNe from Marchant et al. (2019) are included. The masses given correspond to the mass at the onset of instability.
