The solar radio zebra patterns, or zebras, provide detailed diagnostics of plasma density and magnetic field in the corona. The zebras appear in radiograms during Type IV solar radio bursts as a series of parallel stripes that are narrow in frequency. The main emission model of radio zebras relies on a double plasma resonance, a resonance between the plasma frequency, gyro-harmonic of the cyclotron frequency, and the frequency of unstable upper-hybrid (UH) […]

The (sub)millimeter radiation of solar flares, explosive events detected as brightenings across the electromagnetic spectrum, is poorly understood (Krucker et al. 2013). The major limit of the previous >100 GHz observations was spatial resolution, impeding the combination with observations at other wavelengths. The Atacama Large Millimeter-submillimeter Array (ALMA) offers sufficient resolution for the first time. Shimizu et al. (2021) reported a microflare observed in interferometric mode. However, used as an […]
