Cherenkov effect PDF E-Mail
Geschrieben von Arnaud Marsollier   
Thursday, 2. September 2010
The Cherenkov effect is a bluish cone light generated by high-energy particles, when they travel through matter with speed greater than the speed of light. This effect is the optical equivalent of a sonic boom, which occurs, for example, when a jet travels with a speed faster than the speed of sound...
