The Physical Origin and Magnetic Sensitivity of the Scattering Polarization Observed in the O I IR Triplet at 777 nm

Response functions to a horizontal 1 G magnetic field of the emergent Q linear scattering polarization
Monday, January 9, 2017

The linearly polarized solar limb spectrum caused by the absorption and scattering of anisotropic radiation has a very rich diagnostic potential, given its sensitivity to the thermal, dynamic and magnetic structure of the solar atmosphere.

Overview and Research Goal

PICS Narrow-band Limb Images

The PICS instrument is now serving images of the limb taken with a narrow-band H-alpha filter. The new data replaces the broad-band images in the MLSO data portal, and its first date of appearance was May 5th, 2009. The animation to the left shows narrow-band limb images of prominence activity occurring at approximately 21:08 UT on May 8th, 2009.
