Previous studies have shown that the energy release mechanism of some solar flares follow the Standard magnetic-reconnection model, but the detailed properties of high-energy electrons produced in the flare are still not well understood. We conducted a unique, multi-wavelength study that discloses the spatial, temporal and energy distributions of the accelerated electrons in the X2.2 solar flare on 2011 February 15. We studied the source locations of seven distinct temporal peaks observed in… 

Radio and X-Ray Observations of Short-lived Episodes of Electron Acceleration in a Solar Microflare

Solar flares are sudden energy release events in the solar corona, resulting from magnetic reconnection, that accelerate particles and heat the ambient plasma. During a flare, there are often

Chromospheric evaporation flows and density changes deduced from Hinode/EIS during an M1.6 flare

We analyzed high-cadence sit-and-stare observations acquired with the Hinode/EIS spectrometer and HXR measurements acquired with RHESSI during an M-class flare. During the flare impulsive phase, we

Spatial and Temporal Analysis of 3 minute Oscillations in the Chromosphere Associated with the X2.2 Solar Flare on 2011 February 15

Three minute oscillations in the chromosphere are attributed to both slow magnetoacoustic waves propagating from the photosphere and to oscillations generated within the chromosphere itself at its

We present observations of a confined M4.0 flare from NOAA 11302 on 2011 September 26. Observations at high temporal, spatial, and spectral resolution from the Solar Dynamics Observatory, Reuven

Correlation of Microwave and Hard X-Ray Spectral Parameters

We present the analysis of 27 solar flares with multiple peaks that were observed at hard X-ray and microwave wavelengths. A total of 57 simultaneous peaks were observed by BATSE (hard X-rays) and
