Abstract  

The cause of the low detection efficiencies of Cherenkov radiation by the liquid scintillation counter was investigated. The detection limit of the liquid scintillation counter was assumed and the increase of counting rates for the increase of refractive index was calculated from Cherenkov photo yields and -distribution.
