Description/Abstract

Using 586 \textrm{pb}^{-1} of e^{+}e^{-} collision data acquired at \sqrt{s}=4.170 GeV with the CLEO-c detector at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring, we report the first observation of D_{s}^{*+} \to D_{s}^{+} e^{+} e^{-} with a significance of 5.3 \sigma. The ratio of branching fractions \calB(D_{s}^{*+} \to D_{s}^{+} e^{+} e^{-}) / \calB(D_{s}^{*+} \to D_{s}^{+} \gamma) is measured to be [ 0.72^{+0.15}_{-0.13} (\textrm{stat}) \pm 0.10 (\textrm{syst})]%, which is consistent with theoretical expectations.
