The Radio and Plasma Waves (RPW) Instrument on Solar Orbiter: First results.

Abstract : We will review the first observations and results obtained by the Radio and Plasma Waves (RPW) Instrument on the recently launched Solar Orbiter mission. RPW is designed to measure in-situ magnetic and electric fields and waves from 'DC' to a few hundreds of kHz. RPW is also capable of measuring solar radio emissions up to 16 MHz and link them to solar flares observed by the onboard remote sensing instruments. The first results concern a wide range of phenomena including: low frequency Doppler shifted ion-acoustic waves, Whistler Waves, dust impacts, Langmuir waves, shock crossings, Type III bursts, including events observed simultaneously by the Solar Orbiter Energetic Particle Detector (EPD).
