Albrecht, H. et al. (1992) Evidence for the production of the charmed, doubly strange baryon Ωc in e+e annihilation. Physics Letters B, 288 (3-4). pp. 367-372. ISSN 0370-2693 (doi:10.1016/0370-2693(92)91116-Q)

Using the detector ARGUS at the storage ring DORIS II of DESY, we have found evidence for the production of the charmed and doubly strange baryon Ωc through its decay channel ΞKπ+π+. Its mass has been determined to be ((2719.0±7.0±2.5)MeV/c2, and the product of production cross section and branching ratio the above channel to be (2.41±0.90±0.30) pb.
