Coronal Magnetic Field Measurements Through Quasi-Transverse Propagation

  • Chapter

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL,volume 314)

Abstract

The QT-propagation of microwaves as a means to measure coronal magnetic fields and the inversion of circular polarization as an observational proof of the QT-propagation are discussed. The first part of the chapter briefly outlines the relevant geometry and mathematical relations. Then the state of the art in the coronal magnetography and some possibilities are demonstrated. We discuss use of the technique for coronal magnetography and give some estimates concerning the coronal magnetography with the forthcoming Frequency Agile Solar Radiotelescope.
