Abstract

We propose a new method for measuring the difference\(\Delta f = f(0) - \bar f(0)\) of the forward scattering amplitudes for K0 and\(\bar K^0 \) by use of decay rates of initially pure strangeness states after passage through a regenerator. The phenomenology of coherent kaon regeneration is presented for arbitrary mixtures of K0 and\(\bar K^0 \).
