The in-medium properties of hyperons and antihyperons are studied with the Non-Linear Derivative (NLD) model and focus is made on the momentum dependence of strangeness optical potentials. The NLD model is based on the Relativistic Mean Field (RMF) approximation to Relativistic Hadrodynamics (RHD) approach of nuclear systems, but it incorporates an explicit momentum dependence of mean-fields. The extension of the NLD model to the baryon and antibaryon octet is based on SU(6) and G-parity arguments. It is demonstrated that with a proper choice of momentum cut-offs, the Λ and Σ optical potentials are consistent with recent studies of the chiral effective field theory(χ -EFT) and optical potentials are consistent with Lattice-QCD calculations, over a wide momentum region. We also present NLD predictions for the in-medium momentum dependence of ∧¯, ∑¯ and Ξ¯ hyperons. This work is important for future experimental studies, like CBM, PANDA at FAIR and is relevant to nuclear astrophysics as well.
