Abstract : Two-particle correlations of Lambda Lambda and Anti-Lambda Anti-Lambda pairshave been studied in multihadronic Z decays recorded with the ALEPH detector at LEP in the years from 1992 to 1995. The correlations were measured as a function of the four-momentum difference Q of the pair. A depletion of events is observed in the region Q 2 GeV which could arise from the effects of Fermi-Dirac statistics. In addition the spin content of the Lambda pair system has been determined. For Q 2 GeV the fraction of pairs with spin one is consistent with the value of 0.75 expected for a statistical spin mixture, whilst for Q 2 GeV this fraction is found to be lower. For Lambda Anti-Lambda pairs, where no Fermi-Dirac correlations are expected, the spin one fraction is measured to be consistent with 0.75 over the entire analysed Q range.
