Relationships among flare images at different wavelengths
- 24 Downloads
The talk reviews briefly historical development of the imaging of the Sun, and flare imaging in particular, at different wavelengths. The present state is then critically analyzed, emphasizing and demonstrating problems related to simultaneity of observed data, differences in time resolution, limitations of the imaged field of view, unequal spatial resolution, and alignment of the images. Prospects for the future are briefly sketched, including imaging in very hard X-rays and γ-rays.
