We propose to study in-medium mass modification of the Φ meson using the formation of Φ meson bound state. We demonstrate that a clear missing-mass spectrum can be obtained efficiently by (p̄,Φ) spectroscopy together with the Λ tagging, using the primary reaction channel p̄p → ΦΦ A systematic study over several nuclear targets will yield a unique, definitive and precise determination of the in-medium mass modification of the vector meson Φ(ss̄).
