    Abstract

    We have calculated the momenta of the decay products from a hypothetical Σ-n hyperfragment, including final-state interaction between the two neutrons. We have also examined the cascade of exotic atoms that incorporate Σ-n as a satellite. We find that a large fraction of dibaryons that stop in insulators of low atomic number will decay before being absorbed.
