The study of hyperon resonances has entered a new era of precision with advent of high-statistics photoproduction data from the CLAS detector at Jefferson Lab and elsewhere. These data have multi-particle final states, allowing clean identification of exclusive reactions associated with strange mesons and baryons. In this paper, cross sections for K* photoproduction are presented that will provide a future test of the existence of the purported K0(800) meson via comparison with theoretical models.
