 A Ξ hypernucleus, 12ΞBe (a bound system of 11B and Ξ-) will be searched by the (K-,K+) reaction at the K1.8 beam line in J-PARC (J-PARC E05 Experiment).

 There were old measurements with the same reaction, 12C(K-,K+), at KEK and BNL. However, they could not find a clear evidence of a bound nuclear system with a Ξ- hyperon. In the J-PARC E05 experiment, we will install a newly designed magnetic spectrometer S-2S (Strangeeness -2 Spectrometer). The introduction of S-2S allows us to achieve the energy resolution of a few MeV FWHM in a resulting hypernuclear spectrum, which would be the most sensitive measurement for a detection of Ξ hypernuclei.

  A construction of the new spectrometer S-2S was completed. Detector commissioning is in progress. We are now developing an active fiber target.
