Solar Radiation on 175 Mc./s.

  title={Solar Radiation on 175 Mc./s.},
  author={Martin Ryle and David Vonberg},
Appleton1 and Hey2 have directed attention to the fact that radio-frequency energy, with some of the characteristics of random ‘noise’, is emitted with greatly increased intensity from the sun under the conditions of violent disturbance associated with a large sunspot. These observations were confined mainly to the region of frequencies near 60 Mc./s. 
Relation Between the Intensity of Solar Radiation on 175 Mc./s. and 80 Mc./s.
The present note gives some results, obtained during the period December 1946–April 1947, of observations in which the same technique has been used to obtain simultaneous records of the intensity of solar radiation on the two frequencies of 175 Mc./s. Expand
Origin of Radio Emissions from the Disturbed Sun
IN a recent communication1 it was pointed out that thermal radiation from the solar corona should be detectable at wave-lengths as long as one or two metres. This source cannot account, however, forExpand
W.N. Christiansen and the development of the solar grating array
By 1950 the C.S.I.R.O’s Division of Radiophysics was emerging as a leader in solar radio astronomy. Early observations at radio frequencies were hampered by a lack of angular resolution. In seekingExpand
A New Intense Source of Radio-Frequency Radiation in the Constellation of Cassiopeia
THE discovery by Hey, Parsons and Phillips1,2 of a variable source of radio-frequency radiation in the constellation of Cygnus suggested that at least part of the galactic radiation was due to veryExpand
The Growth of Circularly Polarized Waves in the Sun's Atmosphere and Their Escape into Space
The theory, previously published, of plane waves in an ionized medium pervaded by static electric and magnetic fields is shown to predict wave amplification, and consequent electromagnetic noise, inExpand
Solar radio-frequency radiation
The paper attempts to survey research on solar radio-frequency radiation, or solar noise, to early 1948. After an introduction concerned with history and units for specification of intensity, theExpand

Abstract In 1811, François Arago observed the disk of the Sun with his “lunette polariscopique”. From the absence of detectable polarization compared with his laboratory observations of glowingExpand
The Significance of the Observation of Intense Radio-Frequency Emission from the Sun
A summarizing account is given of possible mechanisms which have been proposed to account for the emission of intense radio waves from the sun. Whilst most authors agree that the radiation from theExpand
On a new method for exploring the upper ionosphere
The extensiveness and intensity of the ionization in the region above the height of maximum ionization of the F2-layer of the ionosphere is not known. It is shown that measurements of the refractionExpand
Solare und kosmische Radiowellen
A short summary is given of the more important results and problems of the new branch of research in radio-astronomy. The solar radio frequency radiation can be traced back to 3 different componentsExpand
