AIA 131: This channel (as well as AIA 131) is designed to study solar flares. It measures extremely hot temperatures around 10 million K (18 million ˚F), as well as cool plasmas around 400,000 K (720,000˚ F). It can take images every 2 seconds (instead of 10) in a reduced field of view in order to look at flares in more detail.
