We present an analysis of intermittent processes occurring during the impulsive phase of the flare SOL2012-03-13, using hard X-rays and submillimeter radio data. Intermittency is a key characteristic in turbulent plasmas and has so far only been analyzed for hard X-ray data. Since in a typical flare the same accelerated electron population is believed to produce both hard X-rays and gyrosynchrotron radiation, we compare the two time profiles by searching for intermittency signatures. For this…

Investigations into solar flare effects using wavelet-based local intermittency measure
The present study analyzes the efficiency of local intermittency measure based on wavelet transforms in identifying solar flare effects on magnetograms. If we observe the flare-time features in


Wavelets, Intermittency and Solar Flare Hard X-rays 2. LIM Analysis of High Time Resolution BATSE Data
We apply local intermittency measure (LIM) analysis to 64 ms time resolved BATSE measurements of hard X-rays from several solar flares. LIM analysis yields information on the character of the
Wavelets, Intermittency and Solar Flare Hard X-rays 1. Local Intermittency Measure in Cascade and Avalanche Scenarios
We introduce the local intermittency measure (LIM) as a tool for the investigation of solar flare hard X-ray light curves. Constructed from wavelet amplitudes, the LIM allows us to investigate the
The deduction of energy spectra of non-thermal electrons in flares from the observed dynamic spectra of hard X-ray bursts
The derivation of dynamic spectra of high energy electrons in flares from high resolution hard X-ray observations is considered. It is shown that the Bethe-Heitler formula for the electronproton
The Relationship Between Solar Radio and Hard X-ray Emission
This review discusses the complementary relationship between radio and hard X-ray observations of the Sun using primarily results from the era of the Reuven Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic
Origin of the 30 THz Emission Detected During the Solar Flare on 2012 March 13 at 17:20 UT
Solar observations in the infrared domain can bring important clues on the response of the low solar atmosphere to primary energy released during flares. At present, the infrared continuum has been
Avalanches and the Distribution of Solar Flares
The solar coronal magnetic field is proposed to be in a self-organized critical state, thus explaining the observed power-law dependence of solar-flare-occurrence rate on flare size which extends
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
Gamma-ray and millimeter-wave emissions from the 1991 June X-class solar flares
We have studied the spectacular 1991 June X-class flares using gamma-ray data from the Charged Particle Detectors (CPDs) of the Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) on the Compton Gamma Ray
Deducing Electron Properties from Hard X-ray Observations
X-radiation from energetic electrons is the prime diagnostic of flare-accelerated electrons. The observed X-ray flux (and polarization state) is fundamentally a convolution of the cross-section for
Wavelet analysis of turbulence reveals the multifractal nature of the Richardson cascade
THE central problem of fully developed turbulence is the energy-cascading process. It has resisted all attempts at a full physical understanding or mathematical formulation. The main reasons for this
