    © 2015 The Authors. An observation of the Λ b 0 →ψ(2S)Λ 0 decay and a comparison of its branching fraction with that of the Λ b 0 →J/ψΛ 0 decay has been made with the ATLAS detector in proton-proton collisions at s=8 TeV at the LHC using an integrated luminosity of 20.6 fb -1 . The J/ψ and ψ(2S) mesons are reconstructed in their decays to a muon pair, while the Λ 0 → pπ - decay is exploited for the Λ 0 baryon reconstruction. The Λ b 0 baryons are reconstructed with transverse momentum p T > 10 GeV and pseudorapidity |η| < 2.1. The measured branching ratio of the Λ b 0 →ψ(2S)Λ 0 and Λ b 0 J/ψΛ 0 decays is G{cyrillic}(Λ b 0 →ψ(2S)Λ 0 /G{cyrillic}(Λ b 0 J/ψΛ 0 )=0.501±0.033(stat)±0.019(syst), lower than the expectation from the covariant quark model.
