Trivia
The name "Cerenkov" may be a reference to Soviet physicist Pavel Cherenkov (or Cerenkov) or the radiation that he discovered in 1934. This radiation is produced when charged particles pass through a dielectric material at a velocity greater than the phase velocity of light in that material. It is what produces the blue glow that emanates from underwater nuclear reactors.
