Solar physics group



The Arcetri Astrophysical Observatory (OAA), part of the National Institute of Astrophysics (INAF), has a long tradition of solar physics studies, initiated more than a century ago. Nowadays, these continue with a number of researchers involved in solar and plasma physics issues, divided between the Observatory and the  Astronomy and Space Sciences Department of the  University of Firenze.

Scientific expertise includes solar surface magnetism, studies of explosive phenomena, solar instrumentation, and theory of the generation and transfer of polarised radiation in the solar atmosphere and the solar corona. Some of these topics are described in  more detail below.
