Abstract

We report evidence for the Cabibbo-suppressed decay of the charm baryon Λc+ into the final state pK−K+. The analysis is performed on data collected by high energy photoproduction experiment E687 during the 1990–1991 Fermilab fixed target run. The branching ratio of the decay Lambac+ → pK−K+ relative to the non-suppressed Lambdac+ → pK−pi+ is measured to be BR(pK−K+/pK−pi+) = 0.096 ± 0.029 ± 0.010. The upper limit of the decay into pø relative to the inclusive pK−K+ decay is measured to be BR(rho0/pK−K+ < 58% at the 90% confidence level.
