Abstract

A new method and theoretical base for calculation of the Cherenkov Radiation (ChR) angular distribution from relativistic heavy ions (RHI) taking into account stopping in radiator is suggested. Our method is based on the thin radiator approximation and the Bethe-Bloch formula for ionization energy loss (stopping) and provides fast calculations without using any special software. The simple formula for estimation of the ChR angular distribution width in vicinity of the Cherenkov angle taking into account RHI stopping in radiator is obtained. New peculiarities of ChR - dependence on the RHI charge and mass (isotopic effect), emission wavelength (index of refraction) and radiator length - are studied. These new features of ChR from RHI allow for their possible applications to simultaneously reconstruction of both velocity and charge of RHI penetrating through radiator and even to measure the masses of isotopes or radiator stopping power.
