  • Just completed: Pentaquark s(gnK-Q+)< 3nb s(gpQ+ )
  • Strangeness photoproduction: n K+ - study the baryon resonances not otherwise revealed (non p dacay), obtain info about couplings of nucleon resonances to KY final statesComprehensive study of e.m. strangeness production in Hall B on proton and neutron with polarized and unpolarized beam and targetscos KCMarbitrary unitsn K+ -World data on neutron

    d/d: very few data in a very limited angular range

    TOT: no dataE : from threshold to 3.59 GeVKlab : from 10 to 140 degrees

  • PANDA Straw Tubes TrackerPANDA central tracking detector has to fill a cylindrical volume with an internal radius of 150 mm, external one of 420 mm, and a length of 1500 mm.Detector requirement are:

    Almost full angular coverage;High momentum resolution, p/p~1%;High spatial resolution, r~150m, z~1-3mm;Minimal detector material budget, X0~1%;High rate capability, 107ev/s;Resistance against aging effects, 1-2 C/cm/year;

  • Space-time evolution of hadronizationHERMES provides information on partonic propagation, energy loss and scattering, and constraints in pre-hadronic effects

    HERMES kinematics is relevant to ion-ion mid-rapidity
