Abstract

A measurement of the production of prompt Λ c + baryons in Pb–Pb collisions at s NN =5.02 TeV with the ALICE detector at the LHC is reported. The Λ c + and Λ‾ c − were reconstructed at midrapidity (|y|<0.5) via the hadronic decay channel Λ c + →pK S 0 (and charge conjugate) in the transverse momentum and centrality intervals 6
