Abstract [en]

It is shown that the lower-hybrid turbulence produced by the lower-hybrid-drift wave instability at current sheets can heat electrons and ions in the solar corona. The waves heat the plasma particles by collisionless Landau damping. The waves resonate with electrons moving in the direction of the magnetic field, while they resonate with ions moving in the perpendicular direction.
