Does anyone have any more information on the following (I haven't looked yet)?
You seem to have mentioned all there is to
know about it. One important thing is that
only charged particles can release it.
All I can tell you is that they use that cone
of light from Cherenkov Radiation to detect
nuetrinos, which are normally extremely hard
to detect because of their very low mass and
Look up how the Super Kamiokande detector works,
and that should explain quite alot about how
they put this radiation to use.
Am I misreading that or are they saying that charged particles don't even need to move faster than the speed of light in that medium to emit the radiation? What are relativistic dipoles?
