Abstract

The reaction K-p→Σ0π0→ neutrals was studied with the Crystal Ball detector at the BNL Alternating Gradient Synchrotron for beam momenta between 514 and 750 MeV/c. The photons from Σ0 and π0 decays were detected, as well as the neutron in a small fraction of the events. The differential cross section and the Σ0 polarization are reported at eight momenta and nearly the full angular range. Total cross sections are derived from Legendre polynomial fits to the data. The measurements presented are of considerably higher precision than previous results.
