Caption: A physicist uses a laser to test a mirror of one of the Cerenkov counters forming part of the DELPHI detector at CERN, the European centre for particle physics near Geneva. DELPHI is one of 4 giant particle detectors at the LEP electron- positron collider. It is a cylindrical assembly of many types of apparatus - cerenkov counters, wire chambers, calorimeters, a time projection chamber around the point where the particles collide. Cerenkov counters detect the visible light, known as Cerenkov radiation, which is emitted when a charged particle travels through a material faster than light itself travels through that material.
