The Subaru Seminar is
usually held in Room 104 of the Hilo Base Facility, adjacent
to the main lobby. Everyone is welcome to attend. If you are
interested in giving a seminar, please contact Subaru seminar organizers

" Plasma diagnostics of non-equilibrium plasmas for Solar-B observations and
laboratory plasmas (Large Helical Device) "
(National Institute for Fusion Science)
Solar-B is a satellite scheduled to be launched in September 2006. It is
intended to observe the Sun to provide information about the coronal heating
mechanism. An EUV Imaging Spectrometer (EIS) will be mounted in Solar-B and
it will record EUV spectra in the wavelength ranges 170 - 210A and 250 -
290A. In these wavelength ranges we expect to measure various kinds of Fe
ions (Fe IX to Fe XXIV) which exist from the Solar transition region to the
corona. In order to make a non equilibrium model for these iron spectra in
the Sun, we study EUV spectra from the Large Helical Device (LHD) in our
Institute. Fe ion emission from LHD is also found to be in
non-equilibrium. We measured Fe ion spectra from LHD and have identified
spectra from Fe VIII to Fe XXIV. The first results from LHD in this
wavelength region will be presented.
Seminars are also held at JAC,
