Abstract
We calculate the contribution from rescattering of K+K- pairs produced by p hotoproduction of Lambda (1520)K+ to the photoproduction of phi mesons. The photoproduction of phi masons is presently a hot topic due to the possibil ity that an intrinsic hidden strangeness contribution in the nucleon flavor wave function may be revealed in this process, and due to the possibility that the structure of: scaler mesons could be accessible experimentally via S - P interference in the K+K- system. We show that rescattering makes an important contribution to phi photoproduction which could - if neglected - mislead the interpretation of the forthcoming high precision data.
