Title: Rapid communication: $$K_{S}^{0}$$ Production from beryllium target using 120 $$\hbox {GeV}/\hbox {c}$$ protons beam interactions at the MIPP experiment

Abstract

We have measured the cross-section for the $$K_{S}^{0}$$ production from beryllium target using 120 $$\hbox {GeV}/\hbox {c}$$ protons beam interactions at the main injector particle production (MIPP) experiment at Fermilab. The data were collected with target having a thickness of 0.94% of the nuclear interaction length. The $$K_{S}^{0}$$ inclusive differential cross-section in bins of momenta is presented covering momentum range from $$0.4\,\hbox {GeV}/\hbox {c}$$ to $$30\,\hbox {GeV}/\hbox {c}$$ . The measured inclusive $$K_{S}^{0}$$ production cross-section amounts to $$39.54\pm 1.46\delta _{\mathrm {stat}}\pm 6.97\delta _{\mathrm {syst}}$$ mb and the value is compared with the prediction of FLUKA hadron production model.
