      “Analysis of small-scale variability of coronal observations with the  

      Hinode/X-Ray Telescope”

     

       The analysis of the time variability of coronal emission is one useful tool to 

      look for evidence of pulsed heating. During my PhD program, I analysed

      the small-scale variability of an active region, that was observed by XRT/ 

      HINODE when it was close to the disk centre in 2006 Nov 14, in the  

      Al_poly filter band. I compared measured fluctuation intensity distributions 

      with the distribution expected for Poisson noise and found small but  

      important asymmetries. Using Monte Carlo simulations, only part of the

      asymmetries can be explained by Poisson photon statistics, and we have

      to include a tendency for exponentially decreasing intensity, such as

      would be expected from a cooling plasma produced after a nanoflare

      (Terzo et al., 2011).

     

    •   Analysis of small scale variability (seconds) of emission of solar coronal plasma with statistical analysis of X-ray images sequences of the solar Corona, gathered by the solar satellite HINODE/XRT.
    • Managing, visualization, and analysis of the large set of data from the satellite was made by tools and self-made routines, programs and simulation in IDL programming language, in UNIX environment.
    • Serial and Parallel computing: solution of plasma physics and MHD

    equation with C, Fortran and MPI (Message Passing Interface)

    • Computational methods, numerical algorithms and simulations with
    •                 Fortran, C, IDL, MPI. 
    • Application of numerical models (Monte Carlo simulations) and MHD

                  simulations on plasma physics.

    • Research Activity in Plasma Physics, Statistical Physics, data analysis,  
    • Serial and Parallel Computing.
    • Comparison of theoretical results with observational results, and data analysis results.

      “Analysis of Active Region's Loops observed with HINODE/XRT”

      Nine filters on two filters wheels are available on HINODE/XRT. The ratio of 

      the emission measured in different filters is well known to provide an

      estimate of the temperature of the plasma assumed isothermal along the  

      line of sight. During my Master Degree Thesis, I addressed temperature 

      diagnostics, in an Active region (AR10923) observed in 2006-11-12 in five 

      different filters (Al_poly, C_poly, Be_thin, Be_med, Al_med). I compared the 

      temperature obtained from the filter ratio along selected coronal loops

      with those obtained from a hydrostatic loop model, concluding that a good

      description of the observed loops needs different and/or more complex

     models.
