    • Abstract

       

      We have measured the cross-section for the $K^{0}_{S}$ production from beryllium target using 120 GeV/c protons beam interactions at the main injector particle production (MIPP) experiment at Fermilab. The data were collected with target having a thickness of 0.94% of the nuclear interaction length. The $K^{0}_{S}$ inclusive differential cross-section in bins of momenta is presented covering momentum range from 0.4GeV/c to 30GeV/c. The measured inclusive $K^{0}_{S}$ production cross-section amounts to $39.54 \pm 1.46\delta_{stat} \pm 6.97\delta_{syst}$ mb and the value is compared with the prediction of FLUKA hadron production model.
