International Journal of Biomedical Imaging. In a RICH detector, a cone of Cherenkov light is produced when a high speed charged particle traverses a suitable medium, often called radiator.

On the other hand, the phenomenon can be explained both qualitatively and quantitatively if one takes in account the fact that an electron moving in a medium does cheeenkov light chetenkov if it is moving uniformly provided that its velocity is greater than the velocity of light in the medium. In other projects Wikimedia Commons Wikipedia. Soviet Technical Physics Letters. Its discovery and application”.

When a high-energy TeV gamma photon or cosmic ray interacts with the Earth’s atmosphereit may produce an electron- positron pair with enormous velocities. Retrieved from ” https: This light cone is detected on a position sensitive planar photon detector, which allows reconstructing a ring or disc, the radius of which is a measure for the Cherenkov emission efectl. The angle takes on a maximum as the particle speed approaches the speed of light.


The result is a circle with a radius independent of the emission point along the particle track. Chelovek i Otkrytie pod redaktsiej A.

Efecto Cherenkov

At X-ray frequencies, the refractive index becomes less than unity note that in media the phase velocity may exceed c without violating relativity and hence no X-ray emission or shorter wavelength emissions such as gamma rays would be observed.

If the momentum of the particle is measured independently, one could compute the mass of the particle by its momentum and velocity see four-momentumand hence identify the particle. Retrieved 1 December Matter can be accelerated beyond this speed although still to less than c during nuclear reactions and in particle accelerators.

Wikimedia Commons has media related to Cherenkov radiation. The Cherenkov angle is zero at the threshold velocity for the emission of Cherenkov radiation. Media in category “Cherenkov radiation” The following 30 files are in this category, out of 30 total. The frequency spectrum of Cherenkov radiation by a particle is given by the Frank—Tamm formula:. Cherenkov radiation is widely used to facilitate the detection of small amounts and low concentrations of biomolecules.

RICH two types01 In a focusing RICH detector, the photons are collected by a spherical mirror and focused onto the photon detector placed at efeto focal plane. Similarly, Cherenkov radiation can characterize the remaining radioactivity of spent fuel rods. From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository.

In the given time tthe particle travels the distance. In pool-type nuclear reactorsbeta particles high-energy electrons are released as the fission products decay.

This phenomenon is used to verify the presence of spent nuclear fuel in spent fuel pools for nuclear safeguards purposes. The charged particles polarize the molecules of that medium, which then turn back rapidly to their ground state, emitting radiation in the process. Journal of Biomedical Optics.

A theory of this effect was later developed within the framework of Einstein ‘s special relativity theory by Igor Tamm and Ilya Frankwho also shared the Nobel Prize.

Journal of Instrumentation Submitted manuscript. Cherenkov radiation had been theoretically predicted by the English polymath Oliver Heaviside in papers published in — This is why visible Cherenkov radiation is observed to be brilliant blue.
