The solar corona comprises hot magnetized plasma. Coronal magnetic fields are well known to be one of the crucial parameters determining the physics of the solar corona and are vital drivers of Space Weather. Despite the fact that the importance of coronal magnetic fields has been recognised for a long, in practice, they remain rather hard to measure. The polarization properties of coronal emission at low radio frequencies can, in […]

Although solar physics is one of the most mature branches of astrophysics, the Sun confronts us with a large number of outstanding problems that are fundamental in nature.  These problems include the determination of the structure and dynamics of the solar atmosphere, the magnetic field evolution in the chromosphere and corona, coronal heating, the physics of impulsive energy release, energetic particle acceleration and transport, the physics of coronal mass ejections […]
