With continuously deepened studies on flaring loops, the diagnostics of plasma parameters in flaring loops becomes an important topic based on matured theories and observations. In present condition of solar observations, we can not directly measure the plasma parameters in solar atmosphere, but can only use the observed EM waves and relevant theories to inverse these parameters. In general, these parameters can be divided into three groups, (1) ambient plasma parameters (magnetic field, density, and temperature), (2) the density, spectral index, and energy (lower and higher limits) of charged particles (especially the NT electrons to produce radio and X-ray bursts), and (3) the properties of EM (frequency, wavelength, and phase speed). Actually, the observing frequency is known, and thus the wavelength or phase speed can be obtained from the plasma dispersion relation.
