Resum

In a data sample of approximately four million hadronic Z decays recorded with the ALEPH detector from 1990 to 1995, a search for the strange b baryon Ξb is performed with a study of Ξ-lepton correlations. Forty-four events with same sign Ξ-ℓ- combinations are found whereas 8.4 are expected based on the rate of opposite sign Ξ-ℓ+ combinations. This significant excess is interpreted as evidence for Ξb semileptonic decays. The measured product branching ratio is Br(b → Ξb) × Br(Ξb → ΧcΧℓ-νl) × Br(XΧc → Ξ-Χ′) = (5.4±1.1(stat)±0.8(syst)) × 10-4 per lepton species, averaged over electrons and muons, with Χc a charmed baryon. The Ξb lifetime is measured to be τΞb = 1.35-0.28+0.37 (stat) 0.17+0.15 (syst) ps.
