Abstract

Differential cross sections for the reaction gamma p -> K-*0 Sigma(+) are presented in the photon energy range of 1.7 to 3.0 GeV. The K-*0 was detected by its decay products, K+pi(-), in the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility's large acceptance spectrometer (CLAS) detector at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility. These data are the first K-*0 photoproduction cross sections ever published over a broad range of angles. Comparison with a theoretical model based on the vector and tensor K-*-quark couplings shows good agreement with the data, except at forward angles, suggesting that the role of scalar kappa meson exchange should be investigated.
