Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
Electromagnetic radiation emitted by particles moving in a medium at speeds faster than that of light in the same medium.
- ‘This leads to some very interesting consequences, such as the reversal of the Doppler shift for radiation, and the reversal of Cherenkov radiation.’
- ‘Neutrinos bouncing off of electrons would also produce Cherenkov radiation at lower energies, so Koshiba modified the design.’
- ‘When neutrinos passing through the heavy water interact with deuterium nuclei, flashes of light, called Cerenkov radiation, are emitted.’
- ‘By accurately reconstructing a muon's track from the arrival times of its Cerenkov radiation at several modules, the neutrino that created it can be traced back to its area of origin.’
- ‘To clarify your question a little, only electrically charged particles emit Cerenkov radiation.’
