K'Λ Photoproduction from Hydrogen near 90° in the Center of Mass


Marshall, J. Howard, III (1965) K'Λ Photoproduction from Hydrogen near 90° in the Center of Mass. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/AJGX-5661.


The differential cross-section for γ + ρ → K⁺ + Λ has been measured for a center of mass angle of 90° and for photon energies between 1100 MeV and 1300 MeV. Range telescopes detected both the K⁺ and the proton from the Λ decay. This experiment was performed in collaboration with D. E. Groom, who measured the polarization of the Λ hyperon in the above reaction. The electronic instrumentation for this experiment is emphasized here. The differential crosssection was found to remain nearly constant at 0.14 ± 0.01 µb/sr over the above energy interval.
