A measurement of the spin of the Ω- hyperon produced through the exclusive process Ξc0→Ω-K+ is presented using a total integrated luminosity of 116fb-1 recorded with the BABAR detector at the e+e- asymmetric-energy B factory at SLAC. Under the assumption that the Ξc0 has spin 1/2, the angular distribution of the Λ from Ω-→ΛK- decay is inconsistent with all half-integer Ω- spin values other than 3/2. Lower statistics data for the process Ωc0→Ω-π+ from a 230fb-1 sample are also found to be consistent with Ω- spin 3/2. If the Ξc0 spin were 3/2, an Ω- spin of 5/2 could not be excluded. © 2006 The American Physical Society.
