Title: Variations in the X-ray Intensity of the Solar Corona and Heating of the Coronal Plasma in the Context of the Quantum Theory of Photon Pairs

Abstract

Data obtained in the framework of the INTERBALL–Tail Probe (1995–2000) and RHESSI (from 2002 to the present) projects have revealed variations in the X-ray intensity of the solar corona in the photon energy range of 2−15 keV during the period of the quiet Sun. Previously, a hypothesis was proposed that this phenomenon could be associated with the effect of coronal heating. In the present study, a new mechanism of coronal plasma heating is proposed on the basis of the experimental data and the quantum theory of photon pairs that are produced from vacuum in the course of the Universe’s expansion. A similar mechanism based on the splitting of photon pairs in the interplanetary and intergalactic space is also proposed to explain the observed microwave background radiation.
