Her name is Maria Guadalupe Barrios Sazo, but she goes by Lupe. She has come all the way from Guatemala to work as a Research Software Engineer at RoCS - Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics.
An article in Titan is dedicated a breakthrough work of the WaLSA international working group where Shahin Jafarzadeh from RoCS - Rosseland Centre of Solar Physics, UiO, take part.
Solar Orbiter is getting ready for the first of many gravity assist flybys of Venus on 27 December, to start bringing it closer to the Sun and tilting its orbit in order to observe our star from different perspectives.
- My work will be focused on the long-standing puzzle of energy transport throughout the solar atmosphere, explains Kilian Krikova.
Maryam Saberi from Iran started working at RoCS two months before the Covid-19 close-down of Norway.
Researcher Shahin Jafarzadeh's and PhD candidate Henrik Eklund's articles on the project "ALMA – The key to the Sun’s coronal heating problem" have been accepted for publication.
- This position places me in the best research environment, says Nancy Narang who has worked as a postdoctoral fellow for RoCS since last winter.
Chandrashekhar Kalogodu from India chose RoCS - Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics, University of Oslo, to be part of one of the leading groups in solar research.
After summer break six RoCS publications have been accepted for publication. Luc Rouppe van der Voort, Jayant Joshi, Vasco M. J. Henriques, Henrik Eklund, Juan Camillo Guevara Gómez and Lars Frogner have had their articles published or accepted for publication.
Following up his Master thesis project this summer, Daniel Jakobsson is back at RoCS working at the SolarAlma project. His work stay is made possible by the Rosseland Visitor Program.
A month before the national lockdown in March, Atul Mohan started working at the EMISSA project at RoCS, UiO, as a Postdoctoral Fellow.
This summer, the space probe Solar Orbiter took the closest pictures ever taken of the sun. The images will help researchers understand the sun better. Professor Mats Carlsson at RoCS - Rosseland Center for Solar Physics, UiO, leads the Norwegian research group's work with Solar Orbiter.
Solar coronal jets are extremely fast ejections of hot plasma triggered by a physical mechanism known as magnetic reconnection. The European Solar Telescope will shed light on this interesting phenomenon.
Nanoflares are low energy events, difficult to observe due to their low X-ray energies. The European Solar Telescope will help us unveil these fast events.
Remember what slender Ca II H chromospheric filbrils are? The advanced optics of the future 4-m European Solar Telescope - EST will unveil these small-scale fibrillar structures, the waves they support and their magnetic fields.
The second annual report of the Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics is out! Here the diary of one year-long achievements of the Centre of Excellence at the University of Oslo studying our life giving star: the Sun.
Quiet Sun magnetic fields are thought to significantly contribute to the energy and heating of the solar atmosphere. The question is: how much?
Surges are solar ejections that can be as large as the Earth - or even bigger- and relatively cool (in solar standards), which makes them a very interesting topic to study. With the European Solar Telescope we will able to capture the elusive details of the physical processes that lead to surges.
RoCS hosted the first international workshop on solar imaging with the ALMA observatory, the "new eye" to the Sun. Here the outcome of a week-long brainstorming.
For the first time torsional Alfvén waves have been directly observed in the solar corona by a team of researchers from the University of Oslo and the University of Warwick. The discovery sheds light on the origin of magnetic waves and their role in the heating of the Sun’s outer atmosphere, the corona.
Coronal rain is one of the most striking features of the solar atmosphere. With the higher resolution of the European Solar Telescope, solar physicists will better understand their structure and formation.
We need the extreme capabilities of the European Solar Telescope in order to fully understand the role of spicules in the mass transport and heating of the outer solar atmosphere.
The Rosseland Centre for Solar physics continues growing and attracting young, talented researchers. Get to know four new PhD students at the beginning of their scientific ventures.
