In the early stage of relativistic heavy-ion collisions, a strong magnetic field can be generated. The interaction between the strong magnetic field and the hot medium would provide a way to study the nontrivial QCD topological structures, such as the chiral magnetic effect (CME) and chiral vortical effect (CVE). The three particle azimuthal correlator has been proposed to measure the separation of electric/baryonic charges with respect to the reaction plane due to the chiral effects. We report the STAR measurements of three particle azimuthal correlations of charged particles and identified particles to search for possible signatures of the CME and CVE in relativistic heavy-ion collisions of various energies and systems.
