Coronal Thick Target Hard X Ray Emissions and Radio Emissions View all abstracts by submitter

Recently a distinctive class of hard X ray (HXR) sources located in the corona was found, which implies that the collisionally thick target model (CTTM) applies even to the corona. We investigated whether this idea can independently be verified by microwave radiations that have been known as the best companion to HXRs. The study is made for the GOES M2.3 class flare occurred on 2002 September 9 that were observed by the Reuven Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (RHESSI) and the Owens Valley Solar Array (OVSA). Interpreting the observed energy dependent variation of HXR source size under the CTTM the coronal density should be as high as 5x10+11 cm-3 over the distance up to 12''. To explain the cut-off feature of microwave spectrum at 3 GHz, we however, need density no higher than 1x10+11 cm-3. Additional constraints need to be placed on temperature and magnetic field of the coronal source in order to reproduce the microwave spectrum as a whole. Firstly, a spectral feature called the Razin suppression requires the magnetic field in a range of 250-350 gauss along with high viewing angles around 75 degree. Secondly, to avoid excess fluxes at high frequencies due to the free-free emission that were not observed, we need a high temperature >2x10+7 K. These two microwave spectral features, Razzin suppression and free-free emissions, become more significant at regions of high thermal plasma density and are essential for validating and for determining additional parameters for the coronal HXR sources.
