Abstract

High-statistics cross sections for the reactions γ+p→K++Λ and γ+p→K++Σ0 have been measured using CLAS at Jefferson Lab for center-of-mass energies W between 1.6 and 2.53 GeV, and for −0.85<cosθc.m.K+<+0.95. In the K+Λ channel we confirm a resonance-like structure near W=1.9 GeV at backward kaon angles. The position and width of this structure change with angle, indicating that more than one resonance is likely playing a role. The K+Λ channel at forward angles and all energies is well described by a t-channel scaling characteristic of Regge exchange, whereas the same scaling applied to the K+Σ0 channel is less successful. Several existing theoretical models are compared to the data, but none provide a good representation of the results.
