Paper Abstract

The paper systematically describes the theoretical research on the Cerenkov effect of the relativistic electron beam (REB) in optical fibers. The analytical expressions for light generation, collection efficiency, electron incident angle, the Cerenkov radiation sensitivity of the optical fiber to the current density of REB stream, and the response of the sensitivity of both electron energies and electron incident angles are given. The typical sensor system for REB measurement is presented. The dynamic range and bandwidth are quantitatively analyzed. The calculation results are illustrated.
