Diagnostics of plasma ionisation using torsional Alf\'en waves

19 Feb 2020 Ballai Istvan

Using the recently observed torsional Alfv\'en waves in solar prominences, we determine the ionisation state of the plasma by taking into account that Alfv\'en waves propagate in a partially ionised prominence plasma. We derive the evolutionary equation of waves and compare the analytical solutions to observations to determine the number density of neutrals... (read more)
