Abstract

We present the first measurement of the lifetime of the Ωc0 baryon. The data were collected in the Fermilab high energy photoproduction experiment E687. The measured lifetime is τ = 86-20+27(stat.) ± 28(syst.) fr. Thus the Ωc0 has one of the shorter lifetimes among the weakly decaying singly charmed baryons.
