Hypernuclear production by the (e, e′ K+) reaction has unique advantages in hypernuclear spectroscopy of the S = - 1 regime. The second-generation spectroscopy experiment on 12C, 7Li and 28Si targets has been recently carried out at JLab Hall C with a new experimental configuration (Tilt method) and also using a new high-resolution kaon spectrometer (HKS). The experiment is described and preliminary results are presented together with the empasis of significance of the (e, e′ K+) reaction for Λ hypernuclear spectroscopy and its future prospects.
