The Sun’s proximity to Earth and the presence of solar transient phenomena such as solar flares make the solar atmosphere a unique and opportune environment for studying fundamental processes of high energy plasma physics. Solar flares, a key component of space weather, represent a standard picture of energy release initiated by magnetic reconnection, widespread in astrophysics and plasma physics. In this talk, I will discuss recent advances in solar flare X-ray and EUV plasma diagnostics, led by our group at the University of Glasgow, that are helping to understand the fundamental solar flare processes of particle acceleration, energy transport and energy deposition in the Sun’s atmosphere.
