Abstract

Using the ARGUS detector at the e<sup>+</sup> e<sup>-</sup> storage ring DORIS II at DESY, we have observed the decays D<sup>+</sup>→ K<sup>-</sup> K<sup>0</sup> π<sup>+</sup> π<sup>+</sup> and D<sub>s</sub><sup>+</sup>→ K<sup>-</sup> K<sup>0</sup> π<sup>+</sup> π<sup>+</sup>. The branching ratios were determined to be BR(D<sup>+</sup>→ K<sup>-</sup> K<sup>0</sup> π<sup>+</sup> π<sup>+</sup>)= (1.0±0.5±0.3)% and BR(D<sub>s</sub><sup>+</sup>→ K<sup>-</sup> K<sup>0</sup> π<sup>+</sup> π<sup>+</sup>)/BR(D<sub>s</sub><sup>+</sup>→ø π<sup>+</sup>)= 1.2±0.2±0.2. These decays are found to proceed mostly via the <span style="text-decoration: overline">K</span>*<sup>0</sup> K*<sup>0</sup> decay channel, with BR(D<sup>+</sup><span style="text-decoration: overline">K</span>*<sup>0</sup> K*<sup>0</sup>)=2.6±0.8±0.7)% and BR(D<sub>s</sub><sup>+</sup><span style="text-decoration: overline">K</span>*<sup>0</sup> K*<sup>0</sup>)/BR(D<sub>s</sub><sup>+</sup>→ø π<sup>+</sup>) = 1.6±0.4±0/4.
