A new method is proposed for the construction of the theoretical Cherenkov spectrum. The expression representing the spectral energy distribution has the same form as the classical Frank-Tamm formula, but the square of the index of refraction is replaced by the real part of a dielectric function, which we interpret as a function characteristic of the polarized medium in the immediate vicinity of the passing charged particle.
