Description

The study of the charm and bottom interacting with the QGP strongly relies on the precise measurement of their yields in p+p collisions, since the theoretical calculations of the yields have large uncertainties. The PHENIX collaboration has measured the semi-leptonic decay yields of charm and bottom hadrons and the non-prompt $J/\psi$ yield from B meson decays in 200 GeV $p$+$p$ collisions, using the distance-of-closest approach measured in the vertex detectors installed at mid ($|y|<0.35$) and forward ($1.2<|y|<2.2$) rapidities. This presentation will show the final results on the semi-leptonic decays of charm and bottom hadrons at mid-rapidity and the status of the analysis of non-prompt $J/\psi$ and other measurements at forward rapidity.
