Even small solar flares can display a surprising level of complexity regarding their morphology and temporal evolution. Many of their properties, such as energy release and electron acceleration can be studied using highly complementary observations at X-ray and radio wavelengths. We present X-ray observations from the Reuven Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager and radio observations from the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) of a series of GOES A3.4–B1.6 class flares observed on… Expand


RHESSI Microflares: I. X-Ray Properties and Multiwavelength Characteristics
Abstract We study the general X-ray and multiwavelength characteristics of microflares of GOES class A0.7 to B7.4 (background subtracted) detected by the Reuven Ramaty High Energy Solar SpectroscopicExpand
Microwave and Hard X-Ray Observations of the 2017 September 10 Solar Limb Flare
We report the first science results from the newly completed Expanded Owens Valley Solar Array (EOVSA), which obtained excellent microwave imaging spectroscopy observations of SOL2017-09-10, aExpand
Energetic Electron Distribution of the Coronal Acceleration Region: First Results from Joint Microwave and Hard X-Ray Imaging Spectroscopy
Nonthermal sources located above bright flare arcades, referred to as the “above-the-loop-top” sources, have been often suggested as the primary electron acceleration site in major solar flares. TheExpand
Relations between concurrent hard X-ray sources in solar flares
Context. Solar ares release a large fraction of their energy into non-thermal electrons, but it is not clear where and how. Bremsstrahlung X-rays are observed from the corona and chromosphere. Aims.Expand
Accelerated Electrons Observed Down to <7 keV in a NuSTAR Solar Microflare
We report the detection of emission from a nonthermal electron distribution in a small solar microflare (GOES class A5.7) observed by the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array, with supportingExpand
Solar Energetic Electron Events Associated with Hard X-Ray Flares
We investigate 16 solar energetic electron (SEE) events measured by WIND/3DP with a double-power-law spectrum and the associated western hard X-ray (HXR) flares measured by RHESSI with good countExpand
Implications for electron acceleration and transport from non-thermal electron rates at looptop and footpoint sources in solar flares
The interrelation of hard X-ray (HXR) emitting sources and the underlying physics of electron acceleration and transport presents one of the major questions in high-energy solar flare physics.Expand
Location of Decimetric Pulsations in Solar Flares
This work investigates the spatial relation between coronal X-ray sources and coherent radio emissions, both generally thought to be signatures of particle acceleration. Two limb events were selectedExpand
Observations of the coronal dynamics associated with solar radio spike burst emission
We present the results of an analysis of multi-wavelength data for a solar radio spike burst event which was observed on 1997 November 14 by the Solar Radio Spectrometers of the AstrophysikalischesExpand
Do solar decimetric spikes originate in coronal X-ray sources?
Context. In the standard solar flare scenario, a large number of particles are accelerated in the corona. Nonthermal electrons emit both X-rays and radio waves. Thus, correlated signatures of theExpand
