Hypernuclear spectroscopy with electron beam at JLab Hall C has been studied since 2000. The first experiment, JLab E89-009, demonstrated the possibility of the (e, e′ K+) reaction for hypernuclear spectroscopy by achieving an energy resolution of better than 1 MeV (FWHM). The second experiment, JLab E01-011 employed a newly constructed high resolution kaon spectrometer and introduced a vertically tilted electron arm setup to avoid electrons from bremsstrahlung and Moeller scattering. The setup allowed us to have 10 times yield rate and 4 times better signal to accidental ratio with expected energy resolution of 400 keV (FWHM). The third experiment, JLab E05-115 will be performed in 2009 with employing newly constructed high resolution electron spectrometer and a new charge-separation magnet. With the fully customized third generation experimental setup, we can study a variety of targets up to medium-heavy ones such as 52Cr.
