Abstract

Using 980 fb−1 of data collected with the Belle detector operating at the KEKB asymmetric-energy eþe− collider, we report a study of the electromagnetic decays of excited charmed baryons Ξcð2790Þ and Ξcð2815Þ. A clear signal (8.6 standard deviations) is observed for Ξcð2815Þ0 → Ξ0 cγ, and we measure: B½Ξcð2815Þ0 → Ξ0 cγ B½Ξcð2815Þ0 → Ξcð2645Þþπ− → Ξ0 cπþπ− ¼ 0.41 0.05 0.03. We also present evidence (3.8 standard deviations) for the similar decay of the Ξcð2790Þ0 and measure: B½Ξcð2790Þ0 → Ξ0 cγ B½Ξcð2790Þ0 → Ξ0þ c π− → Ξþ c γπ− ¼ 0.13 0.03 0.02. The first quoted uncertainties are statistical and the second systematic. We find no hint of the analogous decays of the Ξcð2815Þþ and Ξcð2790Þþ..
