Abstract:

Evidence for the production of b-flavoured baryons in Z0 decays is reported from the analysis of 365 000 hadronic events collected by the DELPHI detector. Assuming that most of the weakly decaying b flavoured baryons produced by the Z0 are Λb, the observed signal of (Λl- + Λ̄l+) pairs, where l is a high transverse momentum lepton in the same jet as the Λ, leads to a production rate: f (b → Λb) x Br(Λb → Λlv X) = (0.41±0.13± 0.09)%. Using a sample of 18 reconstructed Λb decay vertices, the lif...
