Abstract
The main purpose of experiment E896 is to study the production of strange h adrons, in particular the predicted six-quark di-baryon, the H-0. The place ment of the silicon drift detector array (SDDA) close to the target in a 6. 2T magnetic field is optimized for the reconstruction of a short lived H-0 as well as of strange baryons (Lambda, <(Lambda)over bar>, Xi(-)). Simulations show that with the present data sample a detailed study of the A and Xi(-) yields and distributions may be performed and a clear <(Lambda) over bar> signal might be detected. Simulations as well as a preliminary analysis of the SDDA data will be pres ented.
