Measurements of D-meson production with the ALICE detector

Cristina Bedda (Utrecht University)

Heavy quarks, charm and beauty, can be created only in hard scattering in the first instants after the collisions and, therefore, they are a powerful tool to investigate the properties of the Quark Gluon Plasma created in heavy-ion collisions. In ALICE, open charm production is measured through the full reconstruction of D-meson hadronic decays at mid-rapidity. In this talk I will discuss the measurements of D-meson production in different collision systems, focusing on LHC Run 2 results.
