Analyzing the structure of solar coronal loops is crucial to our understanding of the processes that heat and maintain the coronal plasma at multimillion degree temperatures. The determination of the physical parameters of coronal loops remains both an observational and theoretical challenge. A novel diagnostic technique for quiescent coronal loops based on the analysis of power spectra of Doppler-shift time series is developed and proposed to test on real data.
