From electron acceleration by reconnection to radio wave generation
Jörg Büchner, MPS Göttingen and Berlin Institute of Technology
One of the hypotheses about radio wave generation in the
solar corona is the electron acceleration by magnetic
By means of PIC code simulations we recently derived the
energy spectrum and velocity space distribution of electrons
accelerated by 3D magnetic reconnection for conditions
typical for the flaring solar coronal plasma.
We further discuss the consequences of parametrized,
accordingly, electron distibution functions for possible plasma
and cyclotron emissions.
