We report on an experiment to obtain differential cross sections for K+p elastic scattering in the vicinity of the possible exotic baryon, the Z1*(1900). The differential cross sections are based on typically 70 000 selected events in the angular region −0.9≤cosθc.m.≤0.9 at each of 22 momenta from 0.865 to 2.125 GeV/c. The data are intended for use in partial-wave analysis to search for the Z1*.
Measurements of K − p elastic scattering have been carried out at 14 momenta between 610 MeV/ c and 943 MeV/ c over the angular range −0.9 < cos θ < 0.9. The results agree well with the best existing data and have significantly smaller errors.
Differential cross sections for elastic scattering of negative kaons on protons are presented for 13 incident laboratory momenta between 1094 MeV/c and 1377 MeV/c. The data show the characteristic forward diffraction-like peak and backward dip and are adequately described in shape by certain published partial-wave analyses of the N system.
Elastik K − n ( I = 1) differential cross sections have been measured at 14 momenta between 610 and 940 MeV/ c , over the c.m. angular range −0.7 < cos θ ∗ < 0.8 . The results, which cover the c.m. energy range 1610–1765 MeV, have been fitted with Legendre polynomials and compared with some existing predictions from a partial-wave analysis.
