Search for Six-Quark States Academic Article uri icon


  • We have searched the missing-mass spectrum of the reaction ppK+K+X for a narrow six-quark resonance in the mass range 2.0-2.5 GeV/c2. No narrow structure was observed. Upper limits for the production cross section of such a state depend upon mass and vary from 30 to 130 nb. © 1978 The American Physical Society.
