We propose a new interpolating field for S11 (1535) to determine its mass from QCD sum rules. In the nonrelativistic limit, this interpolating field dominantly reduces to two quarks in the s-wave state and one quark in the p-wave state. An optimization procedure, which makes use of a duality relation, yields the interpolating field which overlaps strongly with the negative-parity baryon and at the same time does not couple at all to the low-lying positive-parity baryon. Using this interpolating field and applying the conventional QCD sum rule analysis, we find that the mass of S11 is reasonably close to the experimentally known value, even though the precise determination depends on the poorly known quark-gluon condensate. Hence our interpolating field can be used to investigate the spectral properties of S11 (1535).
