摘要：We report in these proceedings on the measurements of collision centrality and transverse momentum (p(T)) dependences of the Lambda(+/-)(c) production in Au+Au collisions at root s(NN) = 200 GeV, using the STAR Heavy Flavor Tracker (HFT). The Lambda(+/-)(c) signal significance is greatly improved with the addition of the high-statistics data set collected in 2016 and the use of a supervised machine learning method for topological reconstruction of the decay vertices. The measured Lambda(+/-)(c)/D-0 ratio shows a significant enhancement compared to the PYTHIA prediction for p+p collisions, across the measured p(T) range. We also report on the updated measurements of D-0 nuclear modification factors R-AA and R-CP using the 2014 data with the HFT. The measured D-0 R-AA in central collisions is lower than unity across the p(T) interval of the measurement. The D-0 yields show strong suppression at high p(T) (> 6 GeV/c) in central collisions, consistent with that of light flavor hadrons. The c (c) over bar production cross section per binary nucleon collision at midrapidity in Au+Au collisions at 200 GeV is extracted based on the various charm hadron measurements by STAR. It is observed that while the charm hadrochemistry is significantly modified in Au+Au collisions compared to p+p collisions, the c (c) over bar production cross section at midrapidity remains consistent between Au+Au and p+p collisions.
