Anti-phase signature of flare generated transverse loop oscillations View all abstracts by submitter

Transverse loop oscillations observed by the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly (AIA) instrument on the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) spacecraft are studied after an impulsive solar flare eruption on 2012 May 8. We have found that a transversely oscillating coronal loop seen in the 171 Å bandpass oscillates in anti-phase with respect to adjacent larger loops seen in the 193 Å and 211 Å bandpasses. These unusual oscillations are analysed to investigate the excitation mechanism responsible for their initial inwardly directed anti-phase behaviour. The transverse oscillations are analysed by constructing space-time diagrams from cuts made parallel to the projected loop displacements. The displacement time oscillation profiles are background subtracted and fitted with a damped cosine curve that includes a linear change in the period with time. The local magnetic topology of the active region is modelled using potential field source surface (PFSS) extrapolation. It reveals that the loops are anchored in different topological regions with foot point locations identified either side of the EUV flare peak emission source. In this context, the oscillation characteristics indicate that the excitation mechanism is closely linked to the local magnetic field topology and the reconnection generated wave dynamics in the active region rather than following an external flare blast wave. We discuss how observations such as these may serve to identify reconnection processes in similar quadrupolar active regions.
