Why interesting?

I would give you just one example here...

  • Nuclear force
  • One pion exchange tail
  • Heavier mesonsNet attraction
  • Repulsive core (phenomenological)


  • Quite different from molecularVan-der-Waals force
  • State dependent
  • Non-central forces (LS, tensor)
  • Isospin dependence

nuclear force cont
Nuclear force (cont.)
  • p is pseudscaler, i.e., Jp=0-
    • L changes when emitting/absorbingp

→ Mixing of L=0and L=2 (tensor force)

  • Bound state of NN exists only for Jp=1+, I=0(deuteron), where such mixing is allowed.





L=0 (S)

L=2 (D)

nuclei with strangeness
Nuclei with strangeness
  • Nuclei: many body systems of nucleons
    • which consist of up and down quarks→ p(uud), n(udd)
    • Actually, there are 6 quarks
  • Baryons with strangeness= HyperonsL=(uds), S+(uus), X0=(uss),...
  • Extended “space” of nuclei

  • New interaction
    • Extended nuclear force to flavor SU(3) world
    • Unified understanding of Baryon-Baryon force – What is its origin?
    • Is traditional meson exchange model enough?Need quark/gluon picture?
  • Property of hyperons in nuclei?
    • Hyperons can mix easily (e.g., LN-SN, LL-XN)→ Dynamical systems can be made
  • What happens to nuclei? Impurity effect?
    • Collective motion? High density matter?

e03 experiment

Fe target




X ray

E03 experiment
  • World first measurement of X rays from X-atom
    • Gives direct information on the XA optical potential
  • Produce X- by the Fe(K-,K+) reaction, make it stop in the target, and measure X rays.
  • Aiming at establishing the experimental method




X ray

physics motivation
Physics Motivation
  • Strangeness nuclear physics at S=-2
    • A doorway to the multi-strangeness system
    • Very dynamic system?
      • Large baryon mixing? Inversely proportional tomass difference.
      • H dibaryon as a mixed state of LL-XN-SS?
  • Little is known so far Main motivation of the J-PARC
importance of x systems
Importance of X systems
  • Valuable information on XN (effective) interaction
    • e.g., How strong XN  LL (and thus XN-LL mixing) is?
      • Relevant to the existence of H dibaryon
      • XN component in LL-hypernuclei
    • Exchange interaction is prohibited in one-meson exchange models
  • How about A dependence?
    • Most OME models predict large A dependence.
  • Impact on neutron stars
    • Does X- play significant role in neutron stars because of its negative charge?
    • S- was supposed to be important, but its interaction with neutron matter is found to be strongly repulsive.
principle of the experiment
Principle of the experiment
  • Atomic state – precisely calculable if there is no hadronic interaction
  • 1st order perturbation
    • If we assume potential shape,we can accurately determine its depth with only one data
    • Shape information can be obtained with many data
    • Even if 1st order perturbation is not good, this is still the same.
  • Peripheral, but direct (X-nuclei spectroscopy)

experimental setup
Experimental setup
  • Long used at KEK-PS K2 beamline (E373, E522, ...)
    • Minor modification is necessary to accommodate high rate.
  • Large acceptance (~0.2 sr)

X-ray detector
  • Hyperball-J
yield sensitivity estimation
Yield & sensitivity estimation
  • Total number of K-: 1.0x1012 for 800 hours.
  • Yield of X
    • production:3.7×106
    • stopped: 7.5×105
  • X-ray yield: 2500 for n=65 transition
    • 7200 for n=76
  • Expected sensitivity
    • Energy shift: ~0.05 keV (systematic dominant)

 Good for expected shift (~1 keV, 4.4 keV by Koike ) < 5% accuracy for optical potential depth

    • Width: directly measurable down to ~ 1 keV
    • X-ray yield gives additional (indirect) information on absorption potential.

mysteries about pentaquark q
Mysteries about pentaquark Q+


  • Does it really exist?
    • Need confirmation/rejection
  • Width? Why so narrow?
    • No doubt < 1MeV
    • Not observed in K+n elastic scattering/charge exchange
  • Spin-Parity?
    • 1/2+?, 3/2+?, 1/2-?, ....
  • What is the nature?





LEPS 1st publication

confirmation of q
Confirmation of Q+
  • High resolution  width
  • First exp. @J-PARC: E19(Spokesperson: M. Naruki)
    • p(p-,K-)Q reaction
    • A good resolution:~2 MeV (FWHM)expected thanks toK1.8 beamline and SKS
    • Sensitivity: ~ 100 nb/sr
    • Stage 2 approved: Day-1
    • Even better resolution ispossible (~0.1 MeV)
q hypernuclei
Q Hypernuclei?
  • Extend Baryon-Baryon interaction to include anti-decuplets
  • May give a hint about the nature of Q+
    • For example, [D. Cabrera et al., nucl-th/0407007] calculated self-energy of Q-KN channel (i.e., K-exchange) weak, not enough to give bound states
    • If Q-KpN channel is taken into account, strong binding can be obtained (cf. N(1710) strongly couples to Npp)
    • There are many other scenarios...
  • Well, it’s interesting in itself, isn’t it?
production methods
Production methods?
  • (K+,p+) reaction: Proposed by Nagahiro et al.[PLB 620 (2005) 125]
    • Momentum transfer ~500 MeV/c
    • Elementary cross section: < 3.5 mb/sr (KEK-PS E559)[Miwa et al., arXiv:0712.3839]... Not good
  • (p-,K-): Momentum transfer ~1 GeV/c small cross section (< a few mb/sr: E522)

We propose (K+,p) reaction
