Abstract:The time dependence of the decay rates K0 -+- TI and -K0 - +- ~ TI was measured in order to test the validity of current formulations of OP violations. An enriched kaon beam at Argonne National Laboratory was used to produce KO (ft) by charge exchange of 850 MeV/c K+ (K-) on complex nuclei. Magnetostrictive wire spark chambers and scintillation counters were used to measure the n+n- rates in the interval from four to twelve K~ lifetimes. The time distributions of these decay rates agree with those expected from prevalent theories of CP violation.
