SphinX Observations of Tiny Flares During Extremely Low Solar Activity
Magdalena Gryciuk, Marek Siarkowski, Janusz Sylwester


The Solar Photometer in X-rays (SphinX) was designed to measure Soft X-Ray solar emission in the energy range between 1 keV and 15 keV. The instrument operated from February until November, 2009 aboard CORONAS-Photon satellite, during the phase of extraordinary low minimum of solar activity. Thanks to its very high sensitivity SphinX was able to record large number of tiny flares and brightenings. A catalogue of events observed by SphinX are presented. Results of statistical analysis of events' characteristics are discussed.
