Abstract

Strange baryon and in particular multiply strange baryon production is suggested to be a useful probe in the search for Quark-Gluon Plasma formation in heavy-ion collisions. We have measured the \( ({{\Omega }^{ - }} + {{\bar{\Omega }}^{ + }})/({{\Xi }^{ - }} + {{\bar{\Xi }}^{ + }}) \) production ratio at central rapidity and pT > 1.6 GeV/c to be 0.8 ± 0.4.
