Abstract

The Beijing Spectrometer (BES) p ex eriment has observed purely leptonic decays of the D, meson in the reaction e+e+ D$D; at a c.m. energy of 4.03 GeV. Three events are observed in which one D, decays hadronically to +r, li*“K, or K”li, and the other decays leptonically to ova or l-v,. With the assumption of p-r universality, values of the branching fraction Br(D, + PV~) = 1.5?~:~+~:~ %, and the D, pseudoscalar decay constant, f& = 4.3$;:;f;:; x lo2 MeV, are obtained.
