I know that cerenkov light is generated in materials by particles travelling faster than the speed of light in this material. However nobody has been able so far to tell me in what precise color is this light. everything I could find is that it is sometimes said to belong to the blue or even the whole visible spectrum and sometimes to the UV region. Having a precise answer could help me in my ph-D where I would like to get rid of Cerenkov light generated in plastic optical fiber by filtering it... thanks a lot if you can help. fred
