HyperCP at Fermilab -- A status report

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The primary purpose of the HyperCP experiment at Fermilab is to test CP in hyperon decays by comparing the alpha parameters for {Xi}{sup -} and {Xi}{sup +} decays in the decay sequence: {Xi}{sup -} {yields} {pi} + {Lambda}{sup 0}, {Lambda}{sup 0} {yields} {pi}{sup -} + p. In addition, we can test CP in charged kaon decays by comparing the slopes of the Dalitz plot for K{sup +} and K{sup -} decays. They are also looking at rare decay modes of charged kaons and hyperons, particularly those involving muons.
