Abstract
The average lifetime of weakly decaying b-baryons was studied using 3.6 mil lion Z(0) hadronic decays collected by the DELPHI detector at LEP. The meas urement of the proper decay time distribution of secondary vertices was use d on three complementary samples. The first sample consisted of events with a fully reconstructed Lambda(c)(+) and an opposite charge lepton, or an op positely charged lepton pair accompanied by a Lambda(0) The other two sampl es were more inclusive, where b-baryon semileptonic decays were recognized by the presence of either a proton identified by the RICH detector or a Lam bda(0) and a lepton of charge opposite to that of the proton. The combined result was: tau(b-baryon) = 1.14 +/- 0.08 (stat) +/- 0.04 (syst) ps.
