Abstract

The Energetic Particle Detector (EPD) on board the Solar Orbiter represents an excellent chance to study Solar Energetic Particles, solar modulation effects and cosmic ray gradients from an unique observation point. The development of silicon detector technology and electronics allows the nuclear and isotopic components of solar and galactic cosmic rays to be studied in growing detail. The WiZard-RIM collaboration has been involved in the development of space borne detectors for the study of cosmic rays in space for many years. Up to now four such detectors (two on satellites and two inside MIR space station) have been successfully launched. Other larger devices are currently under construction. The realization of the EPD would make use of the most recent technologies to cope with the challenging conditions posed by SOLO.
