Abstract
The observability of the recently described helical Cerenkov effect, which exists in the microwave to visible spectrum, is discussed for visible light with the central wavelength of 5x le cm. The uniform magnetic fields from 5 to 10 Tesla, the silica aerogel (as a medium) with the index of refraction of 1.075, and the electron beam of up to 3 MeV in energy are assumed. In addition of being potentially a new radiation source, this effect could possibly be used as a detector of radiation by energetic electrons that are trapped in a medium by strong magnetic fields.
