Overview of Science Instruments

Comprehensive observations of plasma/particles, fields, and waves are important for understanding the cross-energy coupling for relativistic electron acceleration and dynamics of space storms. Instruments for plasma and particle experiment (PPE), magnetic field experiment (MGF), and plasma wave experiment (PWE) are installed in the satellite. A cutting-edge technique for observing wave-particle interactions (software-type wave particle interaction analyzer, S-WPIA) will be realized for the first time by the ERG  project. S-WPIA will be able to directly measure energy exchange processes between particles and plasma waves.
