Michael Hahn is a research scientist at the Columbia Astrophysics Laboratory of Columbia University. His main research interests center on the role of plasma waves in heating the solar corona, which he studies through solar observations combined with laboratory plasma and atomic-physics experiments.


Solar Composition Altered by Plasma Waves

New solar observations indicate that plasma waves are responsible for the Sun’s outer atmosphere having different abundances of chemical elements than the Sun’s other layers. Read More »
