Title: Observation of the Λ⁷He Hypernucleus by the (e, e'K⁺) Reaction

Abstract

An experiment with a newly developed high-resolution kaon spectrometer and a scattered electron spectrometer with a novel configuration was performed in Hall C at Jefferson Lab. The ground state of a neutron-rich hypernucleus, He Λ⁷, was observed for the first time with the (e, e'K⁺) reaction with an energy resolution of ~0.6 MeV. This resolution is the best reported to date for hypernuclear reaction spectroscopy. The He Λ⁷ binding energy supplies the last missing information of the A=7, T=1 hypernuclear isotriplet, providing a new input for the charge symmetry breaking effect of the ΛN potential.
