Abstract

The exclusive reactions γp→K ̄0K +n and γp→K ̄0K0p have been studied in the photon energy range 1.6-3.8 GeV, searching for evidence of the exotic baryon Θ +(1540) in the decays Θ +→nK + and Θ +→pK0. Data were collected with the CLAS detector at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility. The integrated luminosity was about 70pb -1. The reactions have been isolated by detecting the K + and proton directly, the neutral kaon via its decay to K S→π +π - and the neutron or neutral kaon via the missing mass technique. The mass and width of known hyperons such as Σ +, Σ - and Λ(1116) were used as a check of the mass determination accuracy and experimental resolution. Approximately 100000 Λ *(1520)'s and 150000 's were observed in the K ̄0K +n and K ̄0K0p final state, respectively. No evidence for the Θ + pentaquark was found in the nK + or pK S invariant mass spectra. Upper limits were set on the production cross section of the reaction γp→K ̄+ as functions of center-of-mass angle, nK + and pK S masses. Combining the results of the two reactions, the 95% C.L. upper limit on the total cross section for a resonance peaked at 1540 MeV was found to be 0.7 nb. Within most of the available theoretical models, this corresponds to an upper limit on the Θ + width, Γ Θ +, ranging between 0.01 and 7 MeV.

N2 - The exclusive reactions γp→K ̄0K +n and γp→K ̄0K0p have been studied in the photon energy range 1.6-3.8 GeV, searching for evidence of the exotic baryon Θ +(1540) in the decays Θ +→nK + and Θ +→pK0. Data were collected with the CLAS detector at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility. The integrated luminosity was about 70pb -1. The reactions have been isolated by detecting the K + and proton directly, the neutral kaon via its decay to K S→π +π - and the neutron or neutral kaon via the missing mass technique. The mass and width of known hyperons such as Σ +, Σ - and Λ(1116) were used as a check of the mass determination accuracy and experimental resolution. Approximately 100000 Λ *(1520)'s and 150000 's were observed in the K ̄0K +n and K ̄0K0p final state, respectively. No evidence for the Θ + pentaquark was found in the nK + or pK S invariant mass spectra. Upper limits were set on the production cross section of the reaction γp→K ̄0Θ + as functions of center-of-mass angle, nK + and pK S masses. Combining the results of the two reactions, the 95% C.L. upper limit on the total cross section for a resonance peaked at 1540 MeV was found to be 0.7 nb. Within most of the available theoretical models, this corresponds to an upper limit on the Θ + width, Γ Θ +, ranging between 0.01 and 7 MeV.
