[80.01] He I 10830 ÅPolarimetry of Filament

H. Lin, J. R. Kuhn, M. Penn (National Solar Observatory)

Full Stokes parameters (IQUV) were obtained from a filament at the He I 10830 Åwavelength. These observations provide information on the vector magnetic field configuration of the filaments, which, up-to-date, were mostly infered from indirect observations like the photospheric magnetograms and H\alpha images. We will present the instrumentation, as well as the magnetic field configuration of the filament derived from these data, and discuss their implications to filament models.
