In heavy-ion collisions, the observation of the global and local polarization of hyperons has revealed the existence of large vorticities perpendicular to reaction plane due to system’s orbital angular momentum and along beam direction due to collective velocity field, respectively. With the high-statistics data from isobar collisions of Ru+Ru and Zr+Zr at √SNN = 200 GeV collected by the STAR experiment, we present differential measurements of global polarization for Λ/Λ¯ as a function of centrality. These measurements allow us to study the possible magnetic field driven effects through the polarization difference between Ru+Ru and Zr+Zr, owing to a larger magnetic field in the former. Furthermore, the first measurements of Λ hyperon local polarization along beam direction relative to the third-order event plane as well as the second-order event plane are presented. A comparison of results from isobar and Au+Au collisions provides important new insights into the collision system size dependence of the vorticities in heavy-ion collisions.
