Aubert, B. et al. (2007) Measurements of Λc+ branching fractions of Cabibbo-suppressed decay modes involving Λ and Σ0. Physical Review D, 75 (5). 052002. ISSN 1550-7998

We measure the branching ratios of the Cabibbo-suppressed decays Λc+→ΛK+ and Λc+→Σ0K+ relative to the Cabibbo-favored decay modes Λc+→Λπ+ and Λc+→Σ0π+ to be 0.044±0.004 (stat.)±0.003 (syst.) and 0.038±0.005 (stat.)±0.003 (syst.), respectively. We set an upper limit on the branching ratio at the 90% confidence level for Λc+→ΛK+π+π- of 4.1×10-2 relative to Λc+→Λπ+, and for Λc+→Σ0K+π+π- of 2.0×10-2 relative to Λc+→Σ0π+. We also measure the branching fraction for the Cabibbo-favored mode Λc+→Σ0π+ relative to Λc+→Λπ+ to be 0.977±0.015 (stat.)±0.051 (syst.). This analysis was performed using a data sample with an integrated luminosity of 125  fb-1 collected by the BABAR detector at the PEP-II asymmetric-energy B factory at SLAC.
