The polarization of Ξ0 and Λ hyperons produced by 400-GeV protons interacting with a beryllium target has been measured in the projectile fragmentation region. The Ξ0 polarization agrees in sign, magnitude, and kinematic behavior with that of Λ. The target dependence of these Ξ0 and Λ polarizations was also investigated with use of Cu and Pb targets.
