Abstract
A new precision measurement of the $\Xi^0$ mass has been performed at the NA48 experiment at the CERN SPS. The value obtained is [1314.82$\pm$0.06 (stat.) $\pm$0.2 (syst.)]MeV/c2. The branching ratios of $\Xi^0$ radiative decays have been measured as: Br $(\Xi^0\rightarrow\Lambda\gamma)=[1.90\pm0.34 (stat.) \pm0.19 (syst.)]
\cdot 10^{-3}$ and Br $(\Xi^0\rightarrow\Sigma^0\gamma)=[3.14\pm0.76
(stat.)\pm0.32 (syst.)]\cdot 10^{-3}$.
