The detection of magnetic waves in the solar atmosphere, using the Sun as plasma physics laboratory.
26 aprile 2017 @ 11:45 - 12:45
The Sun is one of our best plasma physics laboratory. The recent direct identification of magnetic waves in the solar atmosphere (i.e. Alfvén and alfvénic waves) is an example of how the Sun can be exploited to advance plasma physics research. In this talk, starting from this recent discovery, I will discuss the implications that these new results can have in a number of fields, from astrophysics to fusion research. Further, I will briefly discuss what to expect from the next generation solar telescopes (DKIST and EST).
