In cosmic rays physics often a simple charged particle detector with fast response, best possible pulse time resolution and large linear range is required. For that purpose, we have developed a design that is based on the detection of Cherenkov radiation produced by charged particles in a thick optical glass used as a detection medium by a photomultiplier tube. In this work, the results of detector parameters simulation and experimental verification are presented.
