Spectroscopic Imaging of planetary magnetospheres using Solar Wind Charge Exchange X-rays: Potential Applications on Mercury's Bepi Colombo mission

Abstract : SWCX simulations and X-ray data prove that SWCX spectroscopy can provide insight to SW-planetary neutral interaction and SWCX imaging is promising for magnetospheric studies. MPO/MIXS-C should be able to detect SWCX emission from the Hermean exosphere in the right geometry configuration and SW conditions
