Abstract

The influence of an electron non-Maxwellian distribution (power distribution) on the ionization equilibrium of Fe in the solar corona is demonstrated. The results can be used for specific applications in the solar corona, especially in the description of the ionization state of plasma during the impulsive phase of solar flares, where deviations from the Maxwellian distribution may be significant.
