Since the launch of the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) on Dec. 2, 1995, the Suprathermal Time- Of-Flight (STOF) energetic particle sensor of the Charge, Element and Isotope Analysis System (CELIAS) has observed gradual and impulsive solar particle events from solar activity cycle minimum to maximum. The instrument CELIAS/STOF has the capability of detecting energetic ions and determine the mass, energy and charge of each particle. We report on the measurements of the detected energetic particle events from 1996 to 2001, i.e. the velocity dispersion of energetic He ions in the energy/charge range between 30 and 800 keV/nuc. For energetic particle events we analyse the velocity dispersion of the suprathermal He and O ions (78 and 43 events, resp.) and estimate the onset time of the solar event and set limits on the propagation length along the connecting magnetic field line. mail=hilchenbach@linmpi.mpg.de
