Hyperon-proton scattering is being studied at KEK in order to obtain a better understanding of the baryon-baryon interaction. A scintillating fiber (SCIFI) block detector has been used as a production target of hyperons as well as a target for hyperon scattering on hydrogen. The pilot experiment (E251) for Σ+p scattering has been completed, and the next experiment (E289) for Σ+p, Σ-p and Λp channels has finished its data taking and is now under analysis.
