Due to the requirement of highly sensitive polarimetry, low-scatter instrument and low sky background most of the past measurements are inconclusive.

Recently Lin et al.[5,6] reported coronal magnetic field observations using a m off-axis reflecting coronagraph in conjunction with optical. During the course of the present contract we developed an 'evolutionary technique' for the determination of force-free coronal magnetic fields from vector magnetograph observations.

Abstract. We report our recent improvement in non-force-free extrapolation of coronal magnetic field, using vector magnetograms. Based on the principle of minimum (energy) dissipation rate (MDR), a generally non-force-free magnetic field solution is expressed as the superposition of one potential field and two (constant-[alpha]) linear force-free fields, with distinct [alpha] parameters.

The magnetic virial theorem states that the magnetic energy contained in a coronal force-free magnetic field is given by a surface integral at the photospheric boundary involving the three vector.

NOAO Newsletter - NOAO Highlights - December - Number Definitive Measurement of the Coronal Magnetic Field. Haosheng Lin. The magnetic field in the solar corona is generally believed to be responsible for a wide range of phenomena—from being the carrier of MHD waves to heat the corona, to producing the gyro-synchrotron radiation in the radio wavelength range.

In this work, we model the coronal magnetic field above multiple active regions using NLFFF extrapolation code using vector magnetograph data from the Synoptic Optical Long-term Investigations of the Sun survey (SOLIS)/ Vector Spectromagnetograph (VSM) as a boundary conditions.

We compare projections of the resulting magnetic field lines. By 'vector' measurements we mean that the observation attempts to deduce the complete strength and direction of the field at the measurement site, rather than just the line of sight component as obtained by a traditional longitudinal magnetograph.

Knowledge of the vector field permits one to calculate photospheric electric currents, which might.

Previous efforts to construct solar coronal fields using surface magnetograph data have generally employed a least squares minimization technique in order to determine the spherical harmonic expansion coefficients of the magnetic scalar potential. Provided there is no source surface high up in the corona, we show that knowledge of the line-of-sight component of the surface magnetic field, B i.
