In 1934 P. A. Cerenkov has discovered a peculiar phenomenon, whicd he has since investigated in detail (1). All liquids and solids if bombarded by fast electrons, such as β-electrons or Compton electrons produced by γ-rays, do emit a peculiar visible radiation, quite different from the eventual ordinary flourescence. This radiation is partially polarized, the electric oscillation vector being parallel to the electron beam, and its intensity can be reduced neither by temperature nor by addition… Expand
