|Title:||Association of mid-infrared solar plages with calcium K line emissions and magnetic structures|
|Abstract:||Solar mid-IR observations in the 8-15 mu m band continuum with moderate angular resolution (18 '') reveal the presence of bright structures surrounding sunspots. These plage-like features present good association with calcium CaII K1v plages and active region magnetograms. We describe a new optical setup with reflecting mirrors to produce solar images on the focal-plane array of uncooled bolometers of a commercial camera preceded by germanium optics. First observations of a sunspot on 2006 September 11 show a mid-IR continuum plage exhibiting spatial distribution closely associated with CaII K1v line plage and magnetogram structures. The mid-IR continuum bright plage is about 140 K hotter than the neighboring photospheric regions, consistent with hot plasma confined by the magnetic spatial structures in and above the active region.|
