  • Anusha, L. S; Nagendra, K. N; Bianda, M; Stenflo, J. O; Holzreuter, R; Sampoorna, M; Frisch, H; Ramelli, R; Smitha, H. N (IOP Publishing, 2011-08-20)
    Coherent scattering of limb-darkened radiation is responsible for the generation of the linearly polarized spectrum of the Sun (the Second Solar Spectrum). This Second Solar Spectrum is usually observed near the limb of ...
  • Sowmya, K; Nagendra, K. N; Sampoorna, M (Wiley-Blackwell, 2012-07)
    Blend lines form an integral part of the theoretical analysis and modeling of the polarized spectrum of the Sun. Their interaction with other spectral lines needs to be explored and understood before we can properly use ...
  • Supriya, H. D; Smitha, H. N; Nagendra, K. N; Stenflo, J. O; Bianda, M; Ramelli, R; Ravindra, B; Anusha, L. S (IOP Publishing, 2014-09-20)
    The observed center-to-limb variation (CLV) of the scattering polarization in different lines of the Second Solar Spectrum can be used to constrain the height variation of various atmospheric parameters, in particular the ...
  • Nagendra, K. N (Blackwell Publishing, 1995-05)
    The polarization of resonance and subordinate lines formed in spherically symmetric media is studied. The effect of collisions is shown by taking a combination of partial redistribution mechanisms represented by the functions ...
  • Nagendra, K. N; Rangarajan, K. E; Mohan Rao, D (Royal Astronomical Society, 1993-06-15)
    The combined effect of partial frequency redistribution by atoms (PRD) and noncoherent electron scattering (NCES) on line formation is studied, taking account of the polarization state of the radiation field in resonance ...

    Commission 36 covers the whole field of the physics of stellar atmospheres. The scientific activity in this large subject has been very intense during the last triennium and led to the publication of a large number of ...
  • Spite, M; Landstreet, J. D; Asplund, M; Ayres, T. R; Balachandran, S. C; Dravins, D; Hauschildt, P. H; Kiselman, D; Nagendra, K. N; Sneden, C; Tautvaišiené, G; Werner, K (International Astronomical Union, 2007-12)
    The business meeting of Commission 36 was held during the General Assembly in Prague on 16 August. It was attended by about 15 members. The issues presented included a review of the work made by members of Commission 36, ...
  • Megha, A; Sampoorna, M; Nagendra, K. N; Sankarasubramanian, K (Cambridge University Press, 2018-02)
    The polarization measurement of coronal forbidden emission lines is the most promising method of determining the direction of magnetic fields in the corona. A classical theory for the forbidden lines was presented in Megha ...
  • Anusha, L. S; Nagendra, K. N; Uitenbroek, H (IOP Publishing, 2014-10-10)
    Oxygen is the most abundant element on the Sun after hydrogen and helium. The intensity spectrum of resonance lines of neutral oxygen, namely, O I (1302, 1305, and 1306 Å), has been studied in the literature for chromospheric ...
  • Supriya, H. D; Nagendra, K. N; Sampoorna, M; Ravindra, B (Wiley-Blackwell, 2012-09)
    The polarization of spectral lines is generated by the scattering of angularly anisotropic incident radiation field on the atoms in the stellar atmosphere. This atomic scattering polarization is modified by frequency ...
  • Sampoorna, M; Nagendra, K. N; Frisch, H; Stenflo, J. O (Astronomical Society of the Pacific, 2019-07)
    Scattering of solar limb darkened radiation field on atoms and molecules produces linearly polarized spectrum of the sun (Second Solar Spectrum). Partial frequency redistribution (PFR) plays a fundamental role in shaping ...
  • Peraiah, A; Nagendra, K. N (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1983-02)
    Simultaneous solutions of the radiative transfer equation in the comoving frame and the statistical equilibrium equation, for a non-LTE two-level atom, have been obtained by means of angle-averaged partial frequency ...
  • Supriya, H. D; Sampoorna, M; Nagendra, K. N; Ravindra, B; Anusha, L. S (Elsevier, 2013-04)
    Hanle scattering is an important diagnostic tool to study weak solar magnetic fields. Partial frequency redistribution (PRD) is necessary to interpret the linear polarization observed in strong resonance lines. Usually ...
  • Supriya, H. D; Nagendra, K. N; Ravindra, B; Sampoorna, M (Astronomical Society of the Pacific, 2014-10)
    The scattering of line photons on free electrons modifies the polarization of the atomic spectral lines. Hence it is important to treat scattering by electrons as a redistribution process and to study in detail its effect ...
  • Faurobert, M; Frisch, H; Nagendra, K. N (Astronomical Society of the Pacific, 1999-09)
    The Hanle effect provides a diagnostic tool for weak magnetic fields which do not give rise to a measurable Zeeman effect, such as turbulent fields or magnetic canopies. The lines which are sensitive to the Hanle effect ...

    To model the second solar spectrum (the linearly polarized spectrum of the Sun that is due to coherent scattering processes), one needs to solve the polarized radiative transfer (RT) equation. For strong resonance lines, ...
