Paper Abstract

Properties of nuclear matter can be studied by relativistic heavy-ion collisions in high energy experiments like STAR. One of the methods to learn about properties of nuclear matter is femtoscopy, which relies on information carried by the particles produced in the collisions. Using femtoscopic observables, the source parameters related to space-time characteristics, are provided. During heavy-ion collisions mostly pions are produced and therefore pion femtoscopy is a particularly a useful tool. High statistics data sets from RHIC have also made possible to study the strange particle correlations. The lightest strange hadrons are charged and neutral kaons. In this report, one-dimensional correlation functions of kaon system in Au+Au collisions at √sNN = 200 GeV measured by the STAR experiment at RHIC will be presented.
