Nanoflares are impulsive energy releases due to small breaks in coronal magnetic fields that have become stressed by photospheric convection. They are too small to be detected individually, but several lines of evidence suggest that they may be a primary candidate of coronal heating. But, whether nanoflares excite particles like full-sized flares is unknown (Vievering et al. 2021). A leading theory of particle acceleration predicts that the efficiency of acceleration […]

The solar community has been trying to understand the mechanism responsible for coronal heating for several decades now. In the past decade, a number of studies have shown that the active regions and the coronal loops are heated impulsively. However, such a consensus is yet to be reached for the quiet sun. Past searches for impulsive events in the EUV and X-ray are yet to provide conclusive evidence in favour […]
