Under certain conditions, these materials provide a simultaneous negative permittivity (-[epsilon]) and permeability (-[mu]) in certain frequency range, and they exhibit reversal of Snell's Law (negative refractive index) and Doppler Effect and Cerenkov Effect around the transmission peak.

The paper then summarizes how this beam, when coupled with a large underground water Cerenkov detector placed at the second oscillation maximum 540 km from the neutrino source, could lead to the discovery of CP violation at 5a level over a significant fraction of the range of the CP violation phase.
The end of the book moves to discuss the potential of Cerenkov detectors, the extension of this concept into a variety of RICH detectors and RICH detector testing thus far, and applications of gaseous photomultipliers beyond RICH detectors ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
With thousands of optical sensors buried deep beneath the Antarctic ice, the lab is the perfect place to detect ghostly particles as they, on rare occasions, interact with atoms in the ice and trigger a cascade of fast-moving charged particles that emit a faint glow, called Cerenkov light.
There are different ways for the measurement of radioactivity radiations such as Gas-Filled Detectors, Geiger Mueller counters, Proportional counters, Electronic dosimeters, Chemical Dosimeters, High- purity Germanium (HPGe) detectors, Cadmium Zinc Telluride (CZT) crystal detector, Organic and Inorganic Scintillators, Calorimetry, Cerenkov Detectors, slow- neutron detectors and Bubble Detectors.
Recently, metamaterials (MTM) which simultaneously have negative permittivity ([epsilon]) and permeability ([mu]) theoretically speculated in 1960s by the Russian physicist Viktor Veselago have received great attention due to negative refraction, reverse Cerenkov radiation, and slow light [4]-[6].
Left-handed media can exhibit many unusual electromagnetic and optical effects such as negative refraction [45], negative Goos-Hanchen effect [10], reversed Doppler effect and negative Cerenkov radiation caused by the negative refractive index [46].
