Vavilov-Cherenkov radiation from a model cascade developing near the lunar surface
- 23 Downloads
The model problem of Vavilov-Cherenkov radiation emergence from lunar regolith into vacuum under LORD experimental conditions is considered. The boundary problem on radiation emergence into vacuum is solved numerically in the given field approximation (Kirchhoff approximation) from the cascade near the boundary (near-field region of the radiation source). The results are of great importance to interpret future experimental data.
