Rationale

The Sun is the only star where fine structures down to sizes below 100 km can be observed directly. Numerical simulations of the dynamics of the solar convection zone and the photosphere have shown that processes at these small scales (and even smaller) are essential to understand the complex phenomena of solar activity like sunspots, chromospheric heating, flares, etc. This school, therefore, intends to provide the students an up-to-date knowledge on observational and theoretical aspects of high-resolution solar physics.  

Lecturers

Instrumentation for high resolution solar physics.
Oskar v. d. Lühe, Leibniz Institute for Solar Physics (KIS), Freiburg, Germany

High spatial and spectral resolution observation of stars.
Klaus Strassmeier, Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP), Germany

The photosphere-chromosphere connection, Spectroplarimetry
David Kuridze, Aberystwyth University, UK

Solar Oscillations and wave phenomena
Markus Roth, Leibniz Institute for Solar Physics (KIS), Freiburg, Germany

High resolution observation of the solar photosphere
Ales Kucera, Astronomical Institute of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, Tatranska Lomnica, Slovakia

DKIST A new high resolution solar telescope
Thomas Rimmele, DKIST, National Solar Observatory, USA

Besides the lectures, there will be space for own contributions and students are strongly encouraged to give short presentations of their research work. We expect students that are working on their thesis or young postdocs.
