We present a brief overview of the different kinds of electromagnetic radiations expected to come from (or to be induced by) space-like sources (tachyons). New domains of radiation are here considered, and the possibility of experimental observation of tachyons via electromagnetic radiation is discussed. 
A modern guide to 𝜃-Poincaré
Motivated by the recent interest in underground experiments phenomenology (see Refs. 1–3), we review the main aspects of one specific noncommutative space–time model, based on the Groenewold–Moyal
Studies on Santilli Three-Body Model of the Deuteron According to Hadronic Mechanics
In this paper, we outline the inapplicability (rather than the violation) of quantum mechanics for the representation of the synthesis of the neutron from the Hydrogen atom in the core of a star, and
Compatibility of Arbitrary Speeds with Special Relativity Axioms for Interior Dynamical Problems
In this paper, we outline the rapidly growing literature on arbitrary speeds within physical media and show that, contrary to a widespread belief for one century, arbitrary speeds for interior
Are Tachyons Governed by an Upper Bound Uncertainty Principle
In an earlier reading, we argued from a physical and number theoretic standpoint that an upper bound speed limit such as the speed of light implies the existence of a lower limit to the duration of
Cherenkov radiation versus X-shaped localized waves.
The whole question of localized waves and the X-shaped waves is dissected on the basis of a rigorous formalism and clear physical considerations.
Superluminality and Finite Potential Light-Barrier Crossing
Superluminal movements are subject of discussion since many decades. The present work investigates how an electrical charged real matter particle can traverse the energy barrier at the speed of light
Localized X-shaped field generated by a superluminal electric charge.
It is shown that even a superluminal charge creates an electromagnetic X-shaped wave, on the basis of Maxwell equations, which results in constituting a very simple example of a true X wave.
1 Non-Diffracting Waves : An Introduction 1 )
In this chapter, which essentially deals with exact solutions to the wave equations, we begin by introducing the topic of non-diffracting waves (NDW), including some brief historical remarks, and by


Possible observation of tachyons associated with extensive air showers
SEVERAL searches1–4 have been made for tachyons using either laboratory particle sources or high energy cosmic rays. Effects associated with their supposed characteristic mass and velocity have been
On the shape of tachyons
SummaryWe study some aspects of the experimental behaviour of tachyons, in particular by finding out their « apparent » shape. A Superluminal particle, which in its own rest frame is spherical or
On superluminal barrier traversal
We report on microwave measurements of barrier traversal time of electromagnetic wave packets in an undersized waveguide. This time was significantly shorter than the ratio L/c, with L the barrier
Measurement of the single-photon tunneling time.
Using a two-photon interferometer, the time delay for a photon to tunnel across a barrier consisting of a 1.1-μm-thick 1D photonic band-gap material is measured, consistent with the group delay («phase time»), but not with the semiclassical time.

The modulation phase shift, interpreted as a propagation time, turns out to be surprisingly smaller than the one relative to the light speed.

Tachyon matter and complex physical variables
SummarySome misconceptions concerning tachyons are corrected and it is shown that under superluminal Lorentz transformations some physical quantities that are real in one frame of reference appear in
