Abstract

We studied numerically the structure of angular distributions of Cherenkov radiation (ChR) from moderately relativistic heavy ions (RHI) taking into account the decrease of the ion velocity due to stopping in the radiator. The calculations clearly show that both the width and fine structure of the ChR angular distribution in the vicinity of the Cherenkov cone are remarkably different for isotopes with different masses, at equal initial relativistic factor (velocity) of isotopes. This stopping and isotopic effects in ChR can be observed using RICH detectors of RHI.
