RHIC-PHENIX has observed a large suppression pattern and azimuthal anisotropy of non-photonic electron at mid-rapidity (|η| < 0.35) in Au+Au collisions at . To understand these results and the interaction of heavy quarks in the hot and dense medium, experimental determination of production ratio of charm to bottom is one of the most important topics, since the behavior of bottom may differ from charm in the medium. We measured the ratio of charm to bottom and total cross section of bottom via… Expand
