Tomography of the Solar Corona with the Wide-Field Imager for the Parker Solar Probe

The Wide-field Imager for the Parker Solar Probe (PSP/WISPR) comprises two telescopes that record white-light total brightness [B] images of the solar corona. Their fields of view cover a widely changing range of heliocentric heights over the 24 highly eccentric orbits planned for the mission. In this work, the capability of PSP/WISPR data to carry out tomographic reconstructions of the three-dimensional (3D) distribution of the coronal electron density is investigated. Based on the precise orbital information of the mission ...

Predictions for the First Parker Solar Probe Encounter

We examine Alfven Wave Solar atmosphere Model (AWSoM) predictions of the first Parker Solar Probe (PSP) encounter. We focus on the 12 day closest approach centered on the first perihelion. AWSoM allows us to interpret the PSP data in the context of coronal heating via Alfven wave turbulence. The coronal heating and acceleration is addressed via outward-propagating low-frequency Alfven waves that are partially reflected by Alfven speed gradients. The nonlinear interaction of these counter-propagating waves results in a turbul ...

The Fluid-like and Kinetic Behavior of Kinetic Alfv\ en Turbulence in Space Plasma

Kinetic Alfv\ en waves (KAWs) are the short-wavelength extension of the magnetohydrodynamics Alfv\ en-wave branch in the case of highly oblique propagation with respect to the background magnetic field. Observations of space plasma show that small-scale turbulence is mainly KAW-like. We apply two theoretical approaches, a collisional two-fluid theory and a collisionless linear kinetic theory, to obtain predictions for the KAW polarizations depending on\ βp\ (the ratio of the proton th ...

Full inversion of solar relativistic electron events measured by the Helios spacecraft

Context. The Parker Solar Probe and the incoming Solar Orbiter mission will provide measurements of solar energetic particle (SEP) events at close heliocentric distances from the Sun. Up to present, the largest data set of SEP events in the inner heliosphere are the observations by the two Helios spacecraft.

Aims. We re-visit a sample of 15 solar relativistic electron events measured by the Helios mission with the goal of better characterising the injection histories of solar energetic particles a ...

Spectroscopic Measurements of the Ion Velocity Distribution at the Base of the Fast Solar Wind

In situ measurements of the fast solar wind reveal non-thermal distributions of electrons, protons, and minor ions extending from 0.3 au to the heliopause. The physical mechanisms responsible for these non-thermal properties and the location where these properties originate remain open questions. Here, we present spectroscopic evidence, from extreme ultraviolet spectroscopy, that the velocity distribution functions (VDFs) of minor ions are already non-Gaussian at the base of the fast solar wind in a coronal hole, at altit ...

The Acceleration of High-energy Protons at Coronal Shocks: The Effect of Large-scale Streamer-like Magnetic Field Structures

Recent observations have shown that coronal shocks driven by coronal mass ejections can develop and accelerate particles within several solar radii in large solar energetic particle (SEP) events. Motivated by this, we present an SEP acceleration study that including the process in which a fast shock propagates through a streamer-like magnetic field with both closed and open field lines in the low corona region. The acceleration of protons is modeled by numerically solving the Parker transport equation with spatial diffusi ...

Full wing qualification testing and incremental program update for the solar probe plus array

As the Solar Probe Plus (SPP) program moves into the flight hardware build phase, the final testing of the qualification panel has been completed. The rigorous testing is many orders of magnitude more intensive than that used for standard earth-orbit missions. Testing under high irradiance, high temperature conditions over large areas poses design and logistic challenges, which have spurred innovation in steady state illumination. New test hardware of interest include a large area LED simulator capable of 6X AM0 string curre ...

Constraining Solar Wind Heating Processes by Kinetic Properties of Heavy Ions

We analyze the heavy ion components (A \>4 amu ) in collisionally young solar wind plasma and show that there is a clear, stable dependence of temperature on mass, probably reflecting the conditions in the solar corona. We consider both linear and power law forms for the dependence and find that a simple linear fit of the form Ti/Tp=(1.35 \textpm.02 )mi/mp describes the observations twice as well as the equivalent best fit power law of the form Ti/Tp=(m< ...

Efficiency and behavior of textured high emissivity metallic coatings at high temperature

Three metallic coatings with textured surfaces, made of rhenium, tungsten and molybdenum, were studied in the frame of the Solar Probe Plus mission (NASA) as candidate materials. The role of these coatings is to dissipate a maximum of energy from a hot instrument facing the Sun, by the mean of their high total hemispherical emissivity. The total hemispherical emissivity of the three coatings was measured in the temperature range 1100-1900 K, as well as over time in order to study their high temperature stability. Various emi ...

Evolution of the emissivity of tungsten at high temperature with and without proton bombardment

The Solar Probe Plus mission (NASA) will be the first mission to enter the solar corona. The spacecraft will orbit the Sun at 8.5 solar radii from the Sun s surface at closest approach. Some metallic parts of the two on-board instruments, SWEAP (a Faraday cup) and FIELDS (antennas), will directly face the Sun, while the rest of the payload will be protected by a heat shield. For application to these instruments, a candidate refractory material, tungsten, was studied, confronting conditions similar to the ones expected close ...

The design, development, and implementation of a solar environmental simulator (SES) for the SAO Faraday Cup on Solar Probe Plus

This paper describes the implementation of a solar simulator, know as the Solar Environment Simulator (SES), that can simulate solar flux levels up to those encountered at 9.8 solar radii. The paper outlines the design, and the challenges of realizing the SES. It also describes its initial uses for proving out the design of the Solar Winds Electrons, Alphas, and Protons (SWEAP) Faraday cup. The upcoming Solar Probe Plus (SPP) mission requires that its in-situ plasma instrument (the Faraday Cup) survive and operate over an un ...

Technology development for the solar probe plus faraday cup

The upcoming Solar Probe Plus (SPP) mission requires novel approaches for in-situ plasma instrument design. SPP s Solar Probe Cup (SPC) instrument will, as part of the Solar Wind Electrons, Alphas, and Protons (SWEAP) instrument suite, operate over an enormous range of temperatures, yet must still accurately measure currents below 1 pico-amp, and with modest power requirements. This paper discusses some of the key technology development aspects of the SPC, a Faraday Cup and one of the few instruments on SPP that is directly ...

A simple 3D plasma instrument with an electrically adjustable geometric factor for space research

We report on the design and experimental verification of a novel charged particle detector and an energy spectrometer with variable geometric factor functionality. Charged particle populations in the inner heliosphere create fluxes that can vary over many orders of magnitude in flux intensity. Space missions that plan to observe plasma fluxes, for example when travelling close to the Sun or to a planetary magnetosphere, require rapid particle measurements over the full three-dimensional velocity distribution. Traditionall ...

Thermal radiative properties of carbon materials under high temperature and vacuum ultra-violet (VUV) radiation for the heat shield of the Solar Probe Plus mission

The Solar Probe Plus (SP+) mission will approach the Sun as close as 9.5 solar radii in order to understand the origin of the solar corona heating and the acceleration of the solar wind. Submitted to such extreme environmental conditions, a thermal protection system is considered to protect the payload of the SP+ spacecraft. Carbon-based materials are good candidate to fulfill this role and critical point remains the equilibrium temperature reached at perihelion by the heat shield. In this paper, experimental results obta ...

High-irradiance high-temperature vacuum testing of the Solar Probe Plus array design

The Solar Probe Plus (SPP) spacecraft will fly further into the Sun s corona than any previous mission, reaching a minimum perihelion at 9.5 solar radii from the center of the Sun. The solar arrays powering the spacecraft will operate under unusually high irradiances and temperatures. The array design, material choices, and necessary test facilities for SPP are therefore quite different from those used on traditional space panels. This paper gives an overview of the high-irradiance high-temperature vacuum (HIHT-Vac) reliabil ...

Concentrated Solar Energy to Study High Temperature Materials for Space and Energy

In this paper, the concentrated solar energy is used as a source of high temperatures to study the physical and chemical behaviors and intrinsic properties of refractory materials. The atmospheres surrounding the materials have to be simulated in experimental reactors to characterize the materials in real environments. Several application fields are concerned such as the aerospace and the energy fields: examples of results will be given for the heat shield of the Solar Probe Plus mission (NASA) for the SiC/SiC material that ...

Experimental study of carbon materials behavior under high temperature and VUV radiation: Application to Solar Probe+ heat shield

The aim of the Solar Probe Plus (SP+) mission is to understand how the solar corona is heated and how the solar wind is accelerated. To achieve these goals, in situ measurements are necessary and the spacecraft has to approach the Sun as close as 9.5 solar radii. This trajectory induces extreme environmental conditions such as high temperatures and intense Vacuum Ultraviolet radiation (VUV). To protect the measurement and communication instruments, a heat shield constituted of a carbon material is placed on the top of the ...

Combined effect of high temperature and VUV radiation on carbon-based materials

For the next exploration of the sun, missions like Solar Probe+ (NASA) or Phoibos (ESA) will be launched to answer to fundamental questions on the solar corona heating and solar winds origin. Such solar probes missions that will pass very close to the sun, respectively at 9.5 and 4 solar radii (Rs), need thermal shield to protect the payload and the instrumentation. Carbon/carbon composites can withstand the severe environment encountered during the pass of the sun and have to be studied to understand their physico-chemical ...
