The CEBAF Large Acceptance Spectrometer (CLAS) housed in Hall B of the Thomas Jefferson Accelerator Facility provides us with the experimental tools to study strongly-interacting matter and its dynamics. Polarisation observables, accessible utilising polarised beams, allow us to performed detailed studies on the underlying dynamics of both initial and final state interactions as well as disentangle signal from background events. We have implemented this novel approach to study the interaction between Hyperons and Nucleons through Final state interactions in g d --> K+Lambda, as well as study initial state by direct comparison of results on the reaction with free proton data.
