 h2. Overview 

 The simplest strongly bound quark-gluon systems in nature are the QCD is characterized by two lightest quarkantiquark 
 pairs, pions emergent phenomena: confinement and kaons, dynamical chiral symmetry breaking (DCSB). Pion and the two lightest three-quark systems, protons and neutrons 
 - these also provide the building blocks for the atomic nuclei at the core kaon form factors are of particular interest as they are connected to the atom. Gaining a 
 quantitative description Goldstone modes of the nature DCSB. The flavor degrees of these systems, including a revealing freedom of their inner 
 structure and an understanding of the dynamics that bind them, is thus produced meson selectively probe aspects of great importance for 
 our understanding of the fundamental structure of matter. This experiment is aimed reaction mechanism and the transition from hadronic to confirm 
 the potential partonic degrees of kaon measurements both for studies of freedom. There has been significant progress in the kaon structure itself and theoretical description of the 3D 
 nucleon structure of the proton, in terms of spatial imaging (tomography). In particular, E12-09-011 will 
 probe if the measurements to map the spatial extension QCD degrees of the freedom, in particular through Generalized Parton Distributions (GPDs). 

 The last decade saw a dramatic improvement in precision of charged pion can be extended to 
 those of the charged kaon, form factor data and if kaons can be utilized to enable 3D spatial tomography of 
 strange quarks. 
 The E12-09-011 experiment is an exclusive measurement of new results have become available on the L/T separated kaon 
 electroproduction cross section important for understanding the role of strangeness in GPD 
 studies and the kaon pion transition form factor. It will for The kaon provides an interesting way to expand these studies, opening the first time make precision measurements of possibility to access the 
 L/T separated kaon electroproduction cross sections as a function of Q2 
  above the resonance 
 region. These production mechanism involving strangeness. Kaon data will provide information about at larger virtual photon mass allow one to search for the onset of the Q2 evolution in kaon 
 production. A direct comparison of the scaling properties of the + partonic picture. In this regime, hard and  separated cross 
 sections would soft physics have been shown to factorize and GPDs provide an important tool for the study most complete description of the onset non-perturbative physics. The lack of factorization necessary experimental facilities has left a gap in the 
 transition L/T separated data for exclusive K+ production from the hadronic proton above the resonance region.The newly upgraded 12 GeV beam energy at Jlab, in addition to the partonic regime, recently built SHMS spectrometer for Hall C, has provided an opportunity to expand the kaon data. Recent kaon form factor and provide a possibility to study effects 
 related to SU(3). The L/T separated cross sections at low –t can further provide constraints section results will be discussed showing the impact of E12-09-011, the 
 largely unknown running Jlab 12 GeV kaon form factor. experiment.
