The XRT will provide 2-arcsecond resolution images of the highest temperature solar coronal material, from 1,000,000 to 10,000,000 Kelvin. Http:/ www.mssl.ucl.ac.uk/www solar/solarB/. The EIS will measure ultraviolet spectral lines in two wavelength ranges, spanning plasma temperatures from 100,000 to 20,000,000 Kelvin. These observations will provide measurements of flow velocities (as low as 3 kilometers per second), electron temperatures, and densities from the transition region to the corona. The Bro...
Happy 7th EIS-a-versary, everyone! – asubsetofdaves
Of respect for the guys who were there with us to commission the instrument, and I’d like in particular to thank Jason Tandy (EIS’s chief instrument engineer), Louisa Bradley, Charlie Brown, Clarence Korendyke, Hiro Hara, David Brooks and Matt Whillock for keeping a cool head and sense of humour throughout those often intense days.
