First results from the SCM search-coil magnetometer onboard Parker Solar Probe

Abstract : The SCM search-coil magnetometer measures AC magnetic fields with three components from 10 Hz to 50 kHz, and one component from 1 kHz to 1 MHz. The instrument was designed to properly observe the turbulent cascade of the solar wind in the inertial range and at kinetic scales, whistler waves and their role in the evolution of the electron distribution function, transients generated by shocks, etc.

Here we report on the science objectives, the performance of the instrument, its calibration, the challenges that await us and the data products that will come out of it.
