G. Lo Curto et al., Strange and multi-strange baryon measurement in Au plus Au collisions at 11.6A(GeV/c) with the silicon drift detector array from the AGS experiment E896, NUCL PHYS A, 661, 1999, pp. 489C-492C
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
