K Meson Photo- and Electro- Production with CLAS at Jefferson Lab

  • Reinhard A. Schumacher
Part of the Few-Body Systems book series (FEWBODY, volume 11)


In this talk we give an overview of experiments involving strange particles using the CLAS spectrometer at Jefferson Lab. Also, a first “pre-production” look at strange particle detection in CLAS is presented based on recently-completed photoproduction and electroproduction runs. Experimental issues of particle identification and missing mass resolution are discussed. The results show that the outlined program of experiments is well underway to producing first physics results.
