Open heavy flavor and J/psi at RHIC and LHC
The suppression and collective flow of open and hidden heavy flavor in ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions is studied with the partonic transport model Boltzmann Approach to MultiParton Scatterings (BAMPS). Charm and bottom quarks interact with the rest of the medium via elastic scatterings with an improved Debye screening and a running coupling. Heavy flavor electron data from RHIC can only be described if the cross section is multiplied with K=3.5 to mimic the contribution from radiative processes. With the same value for K we compare to elliptic flow data of D mesons at the LHC and find a good agreement. However, the nuclear modification factor of D mesons, non-prompt J/psi, muons, and electrons at the LHC is underestimated in our calculations. In addition, we present first BAMPS results on the suppression and elliptic flow of J/psi mesons, which are treated in the same framework.
