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.
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.
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.
