Two-particle correlations have been measured for identified $$\pi^-$$ from central 158 A GeV Pb+Pb collisions and fitted radii of about 7 fm in all dimensions have been obtained. A multi-dimensional study of the radii as a function of $$k_T$$ is presented, including a full correction for the resolution effects of the apparatus. The cross term $$R^2_{out-long}$$ of the standard fit in the Longitudinally CoMoving System (LCMS) and the $$v_L$$ parameter of the generalised Yano-Koonin fit are… Expand

Two-kaon correlations in central Pb+Pb collisions at 158 a GeV/c.
Two-particle interferometry of positive kaons is studied in Pb+Pb collisions at mean transverse momenta approximately 0.25 and 0.91 GeV/c to find that the source-size parameters are consistent with the m(T) scaling curve observed in pion-correlation measurements in the same collisions. Expand
