The AGS Experiment 896 was designed to study strangeness production in Au-Au collisions at 11.6A GeV/c, in particular the formation of a six-quark di-baryon the H-0. Heavy ion collisions provide favorable conditions for the H-0 formation either via coalescence of two Lambda particles (owing to the large Lambda production cross section) or direct production from the possible formation of a quark-gluon plasma. E896 also measured strange meson and baryon distributions from mid-rapidity. Preliminary results from this experiment are presented as well as details of the expected sensitivity for the H-0 search.

Abstract

The AGS Experiment 896 was designed to study strangeness production in Au-Au collisions at 11.6A GeV/c, in particular the formation of a six-quark di-baryon the H-0. Heavy ion collisions provide favorable conditions for the H-0 formation either via coalescence of two Lambda particles (owing to the large Lambda production cross section) or direct production from the possible formation of a quark-gluon plasma. E896 also measured strange meson and baryon distributions from mid-rapidity. Preliminary results from this experiment are presented as well as details of the expected sensitivity for the H-0 search.
