Solar flare diagnostic in an unprecedented frequency range from microwaves to THz frequencies: challenges for interpretation (flat)

Abstract

Ground- and space-based observations of solar flares from radio wavelengths to gamma-rays have produced considerable insights but raised several unsolved controversies. The last unexplored wavelength frontier for solar flares is in the range of submillimeter and infrared wavelengths. Although the central focus of this proposal is on the description of solar activity at sub-THz and THz frequencies, it will be essential to analyze their relationships to observations at other radio, visible and higher UV, X- and gamma-ray energy frequency ranges, attempting to find new clues to understand the processes of energy build up and explosive release in active regions. To attain these objectives we propose a special effort along the declining phase of the current Solar Cycle 24 (2014-2018), maintaining, upgrading ongoing programs and implementing new experimental activities. The proposal includes new research and developments on THz detecting sensors, filters, materials and integrated systems for the current applications. Special efforts will be given for the interpretation of results from solar flare THz emission, associated emissions at other wavelengths, in radio, visible, UV, X- and gamma-rays. Attention will be given to high energy physical processes occurring in solar flare particle acceleration and their comparison to mechanisms in laboratory scale accelerators. The proposal is presented in the following sections: Scientific background; New solar observations at 30 THz; Cm,-, Mm-. sub-mm waves solar observations at Itapetinga and El Leoncito, Argentina Andes; . Supporting Ha high cadence observations; Complementary charged particle detection; Solar flare THz photometers on long duration stratospheric balloon flights; Cooperation with with UC Berkeley GRIPS experiment over Antarctica; Cooperation with Lebedev Physical Institute over Russia; Brazilian users of the attitude controlled gondola;Ground-based solar flare THz observations; THz atmospheric transmission; The HATS telescope; Budget estimates (2014-2018)- References (AU)
