During solar flares energetic nonthermal electromagnetic radiation up to the gamma-ray range is emitted from the solar atmosphere, implying the generation of accelerated electrons and ions. Particle acceleration in cosmic plasma is of fundamental physical interest. The solar corona offers detailed remote sounding of these processes. A fine example An interesting example is the X17-flare of 28 October 2003, one of the strongest events of the last activity cycle. Figure 1 […]
