Abstract: Recent Charm Measurements Through Hadronic Decay Channels in 200 GeV Heavy Ion Collisions at the STAR Experiment at RHIC

The STAR experiment has been measuring the yields of charm mesons by reconstruction from their hadronic decay channels. Recently, the charm cross-section in 200 GeV Cu+Cu collisions has been obtained from the measured D0 spectra. We present this result and compare it to previous experimental results and to pQCD predictions. pQCD predicts that most charm is produced during initial gluon fusion and therefore the cross-section should scale with the number of binary collisions. We also report on the progress of extracting the Ds (charm-strange) yield by using the Silicon Vertex Tracker (SVT) to identify the secondary vertices of charm decays.\
