Title: Photoproduction of Λ and Σ0 hyperons using linearly polarized photons

Measurements of polarization observables for the reactions $$\vec{\gamma} p \rightarrow K^+ \Lambda$$ and $$\vec{\gamma} p \rightarrow K^+ \Sigma^0$$ have been performed. This is part of a programme of measurements designed to study the spectrum of baryon resonances. The accurate measurement of several polarization observables provides tight constraints for phenomenological fits. Beam-recoil observables for the $$\vec{\gamma} p \rightarrow K^+ \Sigma^0$$ reaction have not been reported before now. Furthermore, the measurements were carried out using linearly polarized photon beams and the CLAS detector at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility. The energy range of the results is 1.71GeV.
