Funding Approved for New Coronagraph

NCAR/ESSL has approved funding for a new coronagraph to replace the aging Mk4 instrument. Keep track of this exciting development on our New Coronagraph page. The Mk4 is still offline while a new camera is being installed and tested. Thank you for your patience.

COronal Multi-channel Polarimeter

The CoMP instrument (see Tomczyk, et al. 2008) can observe the coronal magnetic field with a full FOV in the low corona (~1.03 to 1.5 Rsun), as well as obtain information about the plasma density and motion. Like Solar-C, CoMP records the intensity and the linear and circular polarization (Stokes I,Q,U,V) of the forbidden lines of Fe XIII at 1074.7 nm and also at 1079.8 nm.
