The Spontaneous Nature of Lightning Initiation 1 Revealed 2
22 Here, we present new radio interferometer beamforming observations of lightning initi- 23 ation using data from the Low Frequency Array (LOFAR). We show that the first light- 24 ning source in the
The Relationship of Lightning Radio Pulse Amplitudes and Source Altitudes as Observed by LOFAR
When a lightning flash is propagating in the atmosphere it is known that especially the negative leaders emit a large number of very high frequency (VHF) radio pulses. It is thought that this is due
Implications of Multiple Corona Bursts in Lightning Processes for Radio Frequency Interferometer Observations
Recent observations from LOFAR indicate that multiple, spatially distributed corona bursts can occur in lightning processes with a timescale of 10 microseconds. The close proximity of the corona
The Spontaneous Nature of Lightning Initiation Revealed
Here, we present new radio interferometer beamforming observations of lightning initiation using data from the Low‐Frequency Array (LOFAR). We show that the first lightning source in the flash
LOFAR Observations of Lightning Initial Breakdown Pulses
This paper reports an observational study of lightning initial breakdown pulses (IBPs) using the low‐frequency array radio telescope and a broadband magnetic field sensor. The data show that the

In supernova (SN) spectroscopy relatively little attention has been given to the properties of optically thick spectral lines in epochs following the photosphere’s recession. Most treatments and
Experimental study of hard x-rays emitted from metre-scale positive discharges in air
We investigate the development of metre long negative discharges and focus on their x-ray emissions. We describe appearance, timing and spatial distribution of the x-rays. They appear in bursts of

A reduced size ion source for on-line use with a cyclotron heavy-ion beam is provided. A sixfold reduction in source volume while operating with similar input power levels results in a 2000 DEG C.
Adaptive weighting in radio interferometric imaging
Radio interferometers observe the Fourier space of the sky, at locations determined by the array geometry. Before a real space image is constructed by a Fourier transform, the data is weighted to
A distinct negative leader propagation mode
TLDR
Measurements made with the LOFAR radio telescope show that a negative leader rather suddenly changes, for a few milliseconds, into a mode where it radiates 100 times more VHF power than typical negative leaders after which it spawns a large number of more typicalnegative leaders.
Negative Leader Propagation
This research focuses on the propagation of negative lightning leaders. According to current understanding, the negative leaders propagate step-wise. Measurements from LOFAR are used to analyze
