Measurable Di erence in Cherenkov Light between Gamma and Hadron Induced

Abstract

We describe the possibly measurable di erence in the Cherenkov light component of EAS induced by an electromagnetic particle (i.e. e, e or ) and induced by a hadron (i.e. proton or heavier nuclei) in TeV range. The method can be applied in experiments which use wavefront sampling method of EAS Cherenkov light detection (e.g. THEMISTOCLE, ASGAT).
