Abstract

The Search Coil Magnetometer (SCM) onboard Solar Orbiter is part of the Radio and Plasma Waves (RPW) experiment. It measures magnetic field fluctuations in the frequency range from a few Hz to 50 kHz on three axes and between 1 kHz and 1MHz in one axis. RPW has been working nearly continuously and SCM has recorded many interesting features, including whistler and other types of waves as well as local characteristics of turbulence. We will provide an overview of these observations as well as a description of the in flight performances of SCM.
