The experiment:

A 1.39 GeV/c π- beam at the 12 GeV Proton Synchroton at KEK was used to produce Σ+ particles through the (π+,K+) reaction in the scintillating fiber (SCIFI) target. The tracks left by scattering Σ+ in the SCIFI target produced visual image data which were analyzed using an automatic track recognition program. After analyzing, of the remaining candidate events 31 Σ+ p scattering events were selected by eye-scanning.

The data:
