Abstract We show preliminary results of an ongoing investigation aimed at determining the configuration of the magnetic field vector in the threads of a quiescent hedgerow solar prominence using high-spatial resolution spectropolarimetric observations taken in the He I 1083.0 nm multiplet. The data consist of a two-dimensional map of a quiescent hedgerow prominence showing vertical threads. The observations were obtained with the Tenerife Infrared Polarimeter attached to the German Vacuum Tower…

This conclusion to the meeting attempts to summarise what the authors have learnt during the conference about new observations from Hinode and about theories stimulated by them.


Determination of the Magnetic Field Vector via the Hanle and Zeeman Effects in the He I λ10830 Multiplet: Evidence for Nearly Vertical Magnetic Fields in a Polar Crown Prominence
The magnetic field is the key physical quantity responsible for the formation, stability, and evolution of solar prominences (ribbons of cool dense gas embedded in the hot tenuous corona). Therefore,
He I 10830 Å Line Polarimetry: A New Tool to Probe the Filament Magnetic Fields
In this paper, we present a new Stokes polarization observation of a solar filament using the neutral helium line at 10830 A. Similar to the prominence Hanle effect, the polarization of the filament
Magnetic maps of prominences from full Stokes analysis of the He I D3 line
We present the first magnetic maps of a prominence, derived from inversion of spectropolarimetric data in He i D3 using the principal component analysis of all four Stokes profiles. This prominence,
Vector magnetic fields in prominences
Observations of linear polarization in two resolved components of HeI D3 are interpreted using the Hanle effect to determine vector magnetic fields in thirteen prominences. As in all vector magnetic
Evidence for Rotational Motions in the Feet of a Quiescent Solar Prominence
We present observational evidence of apparent plasma rotational motions in the feet of a solar prominence. Our study is based on spectroscopic observations taken in the He I 1083.0 nm multiplet with
Magnetic Fields of an Active Region Filament from Full Stokes Analysis of Si I 1082.7 nm and He I 1083.0 nm
Vector magnetic fields of an active region filament in the photosphere and upper chromosphere are obtained from spectro-polarimetric observations recorded with the Tenerife Infrared Polarimeter (TIP
Magnetic field strength of active region filaments
Aims. We study the vector magnetic field of a filament observed over a compact active region neutral line. Methods. Spectropolarimetric data acquired with TIP-II (VTT, Tenerife, Spain) of the 10 830
Influence of Atomic Polarization and Horizontal Illumination on the Stokes Profiles of the He I 10830 Å Multiplet
The polarization observed in the spectral lines of the He I 10830 A multiplet carries valuable information on the dynamical and magnetic properties of plasma structures in the solar chromosphere and
In this paper we discuss some general aspects of Stokes profile inversion in prominences using principal component analysis (PCA). First, we address the problem of departure of the formation of He I
Persistent Horizontal Flows and Magnetic Support of Vertical Threads in a Quiescent Prominence
There has been some controversy as to whether the magnetic fields of vertical threads seen in quiescent prominences are predominantly vertical or horizontal. We report finding special patterns of
