Abstract

Measurement of the energy of neutrons in coincidence with the production of free [Formula Presented] hyperons can be used to determine the masses of [Formula Presented] hypernuclear states and branching ratios of their formation from [Formula Presented] The E885 Collaboration utilized the Alternating Gradient Synchrotron [Formula Presented] beam incident on a diamond target to accumulate the largest-to-date data sample of [Formula Presented] events. A total of about [Formula Presented] events have been collected and analyzed. The neutron spectrum shows no apparent peaks from the neutron-emission channel of double-[Formula Presented] hypernuclear formation from [Formula Presented] decay. The upper limit on the branching ratio of the above process has been set to be at or below 4% in the region of expected neutron energies.
