Summary

We present spectral diagnostics for the fluxes of emission lines, in the spectral range 3600-4400 Å, during the cooling phase of stellar flares on dMe stars. Using these diagnostics, electron temperatures have been computed for flares on AD Leonis, Proxima Centauri and UV Ceti. This preliminary model assumes a single flare loop containing a homogeneous, stationary optically-thin flare plasma.
