Title: Spectroscopy of the neutron-rich hypernucleus He Λ 7 from electron scattering

Abstract

Here, the missing mass spectroscopy of the $$^{7}_{\Lambda}$$He hypernucleus was performed, using the $$^{7}$$Li$$(e,e^{\prime}K^{+})^{7}_{\Lambda}$$He reaction at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility Hall C. The $$\Lambda$$ binding energy of the ground state (1/2$$^{+}$$) was determined with a smaller error than that of the previous measurement, being $$B_{\Lambda}$$ = 5.55 $$\pm$$ 0.10(stat.) $$\pm$$ 0.11(sys.) MeV. The experiment also provided new insight into charge symmetry breaking in p-shell hypernuclear systems. Finally, a peak at $$B_{\Lambda}$$ = 3.65 $$\pm$$ 0.20(stat.) $$\pm$$ 0.11(sys.) MeV was observed and assigned as a mixture of 3/2$$^{+}$$ and 5/2$$^{+}$$ states, confirming the "gluelike" behavior of $$\Lambda$$, which makes an unstable state in $$^{6}$$He stable against neutron emission.
