Abstract

We present a search for a pentaquark decaying strongly to p KS0 in γN collisions at a center-of-mass energy up to 25 GeV. Finding no evidence for such a state in the mass range of 1470   MeV / c2 to 2200   MeV / c2, we set limits on the yield and on the cross section times branching ratio relative to Σ* (1385)± and K* (892)+.
