We have theoretically investigated the electromagnetic radiation excited by a charged particle moving along a semi-infinite space filled with a double-negative metamaterial (DNM). Cherenkov radiation in the double-negative region exhibits reversed or backward radiation behavior. The spectral density of reversed Cherenkov radiation has a continuous distribution over the radiation frequency region. The influence of some important parameters on the Cherenkov radiation energy per unit length has been discussed. The surface wave in the vacuum region presented here also is investigated. We conclude that the amplitude of the surface wave is greatly enhanced over some normal dielectric material cases. The enhanced surface wave may be useful for high frequency and high power vacuum electron devices with the DNM.
