Evidence for cyclotron maser emission from the Sun and stars
- 24 Downloads
In recent years radiation has been observed from planets, Sun and stars that is best explained by the cyclotron maser instability; in fact, all celestial bodies that might feasibly emit and be detected by their cyclotron maser radiation have been detected. Here we review those observations, the developments in the theory, the recent work on the effiency of energy transfer by cyclotron maser radiation, and some recent and future observations that might demonstrate whether the mechanism is energetically important in solar and stellar flares.
