We measure the absolute branching fractions of Ds semileptonic decays where the hadron in the final state is one of φ, η, η′, KS0, K 0, and f0, using 2.8×105 e+e-→DsDs decays collected in the CLEO-c detector at a center-of-mass energy close to 4170 MeV. We obtain B(Ds+→e+νe)=(2.29±0.37±0.11)%, B(Ds+→ηe+νe)= (2.48±0.29±0.13)%, B(Ds+→η′e+νe)=(0.91±0. 33±0.05)%, where the first uncertainties are statistical and the second are systematic. We also obtain B(Ds+→K0e+νe)=(0.37±0.10±0. 02)%, and B(Ds+→K0e+νe)=(0.18±0.07±0.01)%, which are the first measurements of Cabibbo suppressed exclusive Ds semileptonic decays, and, B(Ds+→f0e+νe)×B(f0→π+π-)=(0.13±0.04±0.01) %. This is the first absolute product branching fraction determination for a semileptonic decay including a scalar meson in the final state.
