Plasma waves detected in the Sun’s photosphere
- A study published in existence of magnetic plasma waves, known as Alfvén waves, in the Sun’s photosphere.
- The investigation Nature Astronomy reports the gives new bits of knowledge into these intriguing waves that were first found by the Nobel Prize-winning researcher Hannes Alfvén in 1947.
- The huge capability of these waves lives in their capacity to move energy and data over huge distances because of their magnetic nature.
- The immediate revelation of these waves in the solar photosphere, the lowest layer of the solar atmosphere, is the initial move towards exploiting the properties of these magnetic waves.
