Spatial resolution multimodal imaging, Cerenkov Bioluminescence Imaging and real time storage multimodal imaging system collectively contribute to the significance of small animal imaging (in-vivo) systems in the drug development and translational research.
Cerenkov radiation A bluish light that is emitted when charged particles travel through a medium at a speed that exceeds the speed of light in that medium.
A handheld optical instrument called an Improved Cerenkov Viewing Device (ICVD) is used to confirm the presence of spent fuel stored underwater.
There exist abnormal negative refraction effect [16], inverse Cerenkov radiation, reverse Doppler effect [17], and negative radiation pressure [18] in NIMs because the electromagnetic wave group velocity and phase velocity of these materials are oriented in the opposite direction; based on these principles, optical film contained NIMs has broad application prospects in microwave communication, large capacity storage medium, and superresolution imaging.

[sup.68]Ga, easily accessible via elution from the [sup.68]Ge-[sup.68]Ga generator, can produce Cerenkov radiation and allow the combination of PET-Cerenkov luminescence imaging (CLI) for both tumour diagnosis and visual guidance for further surgery [17].
The filter papers were washed with 75 mM phosphoric acid 3 times for 5 minutes each and subsequently quantified in a scintillation counter (Beckman) via the Cerenkov counting method [66, 67].
Vaselago had introduced the concept of negative refractive index materials (left handed materials (LHM)) in 1968 [1] which exhibits a negative refractive index due to the simultaneous negative permeability and permittivity and these materials have electromagnetic properties such as negative refraction, reversed Doppler shift and reversed Cerenkov radiation.
