Both NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) and the JAXA/NASA Hinode mission include spectropolarimetric instruments designed to measure the photospheric magnetic field. SDO’s Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager (HMI) emphasizes full-disk, high-cadence, and good-spatial-resolution data acquisition while Hinode’s Solar Optical Telescope Spectro-Polarimeter (SOT-SP) focuses on high spatial resolution and spectral sampling at the cost of a limited field of view and slower temporal cadence.
