A program of hypernuclear spectroscopy experiments encompassing many hypernuclei has been undertaken in both Halls A and C using complimentary approaches. Spectra with sub-MeV resolution have been obtained for 9ΛLi, 12ΛB, and 16ΛN in Hall A, while results from Hall C include 7ΛHe, 12ΛB, and 28ΛAl with new data still under analysis for 7ΛHe, 9ΛLi, 10ΛBe, 12ΛB and 52ΛV. High resolution and high precision in the determination of the single Λ binding energy at various shell levels has been the key success of these experiments using the (e,e′K+) reaction to produce Λ hypernuclei.
