We report on the measurement of J/ψ production in the dielectron channel at midrapidity (|y| < 1) in p + p and d + Au collisions at √sNN = 200 GeV from the STAR experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider. The transverse momentum pTspectra in p + p for pT < 4 GeV/c and d + Au collisions for pT < 3 GeV/c are presented. These measurements extend the STAR coverage for J/ψ production in p + p collisions to low pT. The ⟨p2T⟩ from the measured J/ψ invariant cross section in p + p and d + Au collisions are evaluated and compared to similar measurements at other collision energies. The nuclear modification factor for J/ψ is extracted as a function of pT and collision centrality in d + Au and compared to model calculations using the modified nuclear parton distribution function and a final-state J/ψ nuclear absorption cross section.
