Abstract

The dynamics of the strong interaction processes in the non-perturbative regime is currently approached by lattice calculations and effective field theories (ChPT), still lacking several experimental results, fundamental for a good understanding of the strangeness sector. Among these, the information provided by the low-energy kaon nucleon/nuclei interaction, accessible through the study of kaonic atoms and kaonic nuclear processes, plays a key-role. The lightest atomic systems, the kaonic hydrogen and the kaonic deuterium, deliver, in a model-independent way, the isospin-dependent kaon-nucleon scattering lengths, through the X- ray spectroscopy of the exotic atoms de-exciting to the fundamental level. The most precise kaonic hydrogen measurement to-date, together with an exploratory measurement of kaonic deuterium, were carried out in 2009 at the DAΦNE collider, by the SIDDHARTA collaboration. Nowadays, an upgraded setup was built, for a precise measurement of kaonic deuterium and, eventually, of heavier exotic atoms. A correlated study of the kaon-nuclei interaction at momenta below 130 MeV/c is carried out by the AMADEUS collaboration, using the KLOE detector and dedicated targets inserted near the collider interaction point. Preliminary results of the study of charged antikaons interacting with nuclei are shown, including a discussion of the still controversial Λ(1405).
