An experimental comparison of pumped superluminal electromagnetic radiation to Cerenkov radiation.
Graham, Jerry Lee
MetadataShow full item record
Experiments were conducted to measure the intensity of radiation emitted by a superluminal 100 MeV electron moving through a static, periodic, plane polarized magnetic field oriented perpendicular to the electron's trajectory. Such radiation is known as pumped superluminal electromagnetic radiation (PSER) . Comparison was then made with the intensity of Cerenkov radiation emitted by a superluminal 10 MeV electron without a pump field. it was found that the PSER was 12.78% ± 0.75% more intense than the Cerenkov radiation.
