Abstract [en]

Electric fields in the solar wind are very poorly studied; there have been no instruments dedicated to measuring solar wind electric fields and plasma waves at low frequencies. Here we discuss some of the important physics of LF electric fields, including dissipation of MHD turbulence, shock acceleration of particles, and solar wind magnetic reconnection. We then present some antenna sensor and instrument designs that will potentially satisfy the goal of measuring both DC/low frequency electric fields AND higher frequency radio and thermal noise emissions. We discuss trades between science goals and complexity of the designs.
