Measurement of heavy flavour production in Pb-Pb collisions at the LHC with ALICE, R. Grajcarek, University of Heidelberg, Physikalisches Institut,Philosophenweg 12, Heidelberg, Germany − A Large Ion Collider Experiment (ALICE) at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has been built in order to identify and characterize the quark gluon plasma (QGP) created in high-energy nuclear collisions.  As heavy flavour quarks are produced at the early stage of the collision, they serve as ideal probes for a QGP.  The ALICE detector with its powerful capabilities such as particle identification, secondary vertexing at sub-millimeter precision and tracking in a high multiplicity environment addresses the heavy flavour sector in nuclear collisions.  We report latest on news on the measurement of open heavy flavour elliptic flow as well as on the measurement of the nuclear modification factor of open heavy flavour at unprecedented high energies of sNN = 2.76 TeV in Pb-Pb collisions. We will also discuss the status of the analysis of high-statistics data from the 2011 Pb-Pb run.  Open charmed hadrons are kinematically reconstructed in the hadronic decay channels D0--> Kpi, D+ --> Kpipi, and     D*+ --> D0(Kpi)pi applying a secondary decay-vertex topology. Complementary measurements are performed by detecting electrons (muons) from semileptonic decays of open heavy flavoured hadrons in the central (forward) region.
