As for solar flares, one of the most physically revealing types of data for M-dwarf flares are high-resolution, time-resolved spectra. Due to the intrinsically faint nature of the M-dwarf stars, spectroscopic data has tended to be of low spectral (˜ 5 Ǻ) and temporal (˜ 5 min) resolution. However, with the development of image intensified spectrographs and fast, efficient digital detectors, the last several years have seen the successful acquisition of both high time and spectral resolution M-dwarf flare spectra. Recent programs have also been successfully conducted using the International Ultraviolet Explorer (IUE) satellite to obtain UV and EUV spectra of M-dwarf flares. These data reveal that dwarf M star flares are remarkably similar to solar flares in all aspects of their spectroscopic phenomenology.
