TOKYO, Apr 24, 2018 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu announced that the array control system recently deployed for the Institute of Cosmic Ray Research (ICRR), University of Tokyo, to be used in the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA), a gamma ray observatory capable of observations with a sensitivity aiming to be more than ten times greater than existing gamma ray telescopes, has now commenced operations.

It uses the same beam as its predecessor T2K, an off-axis beam from the J-Park facility 295 km away from its new far detector: two water Cherenkov tanks with 190 kt of fiducial mass each.
Glyndwr Innovations', Precision Optical Systems Group based at the St Asaph site have been collaborating with Liverpool and Durham Universities to develop technology for fabrication of low-cost mirror segments for the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA).
Pulsed millimeter and terahertz devices include "photoconductive switches" driven by an ultra-short pulse laser and "Cherenkov sources" driven by a much higher power, ultra-short-pulse laser, shining through a nonlinear crystal (lithium niobate).

Due to this, there are several dedicated instruments, both Ground or space based, performing a continuous survey of the Universe characterizing gamma-ray sources, for example, the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope and the imaging atmospheric Cherenkov telescopes HESS, MAGIC, VERITAS, and FACT.
Dispersive wave (DW), also called nonsolitonic radiation or Cherenkov radiation [6], is particularly important for supercontinuum generation, broadband light sources, and broadband frequency conversion in fiber optics, and manipulating DW generation is a technique with a concentrated transfer of energy into a narrow spectral band.
have studied the dispersion relations of EM waves in beam-ion channel system and the mechanism of Cherenkov EM instability [17, 18].
The system incorporates five imaging modalities as standard on one instrument, providing co-registration of molecular events based on bioluminescence, fluorescence, cherenkov radiation, direct radioisotopic imaging (DRI) and X-ray imaging.
