Title: Measurement of the differential and total cross sections of the γ d K 0 Λ ( p ) reaction within the resonance region

Abstract

Here, we report the first measurement of differential and total cross sections for the $${\gamma}d \to K^0{\Lambda}(p)$$ reaction, using data from the CLAS detector at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility. Data collected during two separate experimental runs were studied with photon-energy coverage 0.8 - 3.6 GeV and 0.5 - 2.6 GeV, respectively. The two measurements are consistent giving confidence in the method and determination of systematic uncertainties. The cross sections are compared with predictions from the KAON-MAID theoretical model (without kaon exchange), which deviate from the data at higher W and at forward kaon angles. These data, along with previously published cross sections for $$K^+ {\Lambda}$$ photoproduction, provide essential constraints on the nucleon resonance spectrum. A first partial wave analysis has been performed that describes the data without the introduction of new resonances.
