Title: K{sub S} Lambda Photoproduction On The Neutron Within The Resonance Region

We report some preliminary differential cross section results for the gammad --> K{sub S} Lambda(p) reaction using a circularly-polarized photon beam and an unpolarized LD{sub 2} target. The data was collected at the CEBAF Large Acceptance Spectrometer (CLAS) at Jefferson Lab. For this study the photon energy ranged from 1.3 to 2.53 GeV, which covers from the reaction threshold through the nucleon resonance regimes. The acceptance- and flux-corrected yields show peaks at the center-of mass energies W = 1.7 and W = 1.9 GeV. These first-time results will aid in unraveling the spectrum of non-strange excited baryons.
