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 collaboration has been involved in the development of space borne detectors for the study of cosmic rays in space for many years. This collaboration, together with the Solar and Space Physics group of the University of Rome Tor Vergata (Italy), is interested in contributing to the realization of the Energetic Particle Detector, building the High Energy Telescope HETn, to observe charged particles associated to SEPs. The realization of the HETn would make use of the most recent technologies to cope with the challenging conditions posed by SOLO.
