Abstract

The first measurements of the transferred polarization for the exclusive ep to e'K + Lambda reaction have been performed at Jefferson Laboratory using the CLAS spectrometer. A 2.567 GeV beam was used to measure the hyperon polarization over Q/sup 2/ from 0.3 to 1.5 (GeV/c)/sup 2/, W from 1.6 to 2.15 GeV, and over the full K/sup +/ center-of-mass angular range. Comparison with predictions of hadrodynamic models indicates strong sensitivity to the underlying resonance contributions. A nonrelativistic quark-model interpretation of our data suggests that the ss quark pair is produced with spins predominantly antialigned. Implications for the validity of the most widely used quark-pair creation operator are discussed.
