The 1st workshop On POLAR Instrument In-Space Calibration and Solar Flare Detection
On May 4th 2016, the 1st workshop for POLAR Instrument In-space Calibration and Solar Flare Detection was hold in Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). Twenty researchers from IHEP, Purple Mountain Observatory (PMO), CAS, Peking University, National Space Science Center (NSSC), CAS, Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI, Switzerland) and University of Glasgow (UK) attended this workshop.
This workshop mainly focused on the detection and polarization measurement of solar flare, current status of POLAR and possible joint observations. Finally participants discussed about the future cooperation and agreed that POLAR has a good potential to perform polarization measurement of solar flare.
