Photon Hanbury-Brown–Twiss interferometry for noncentral heavy-ion collisions

Abstract

Currently, the only known way to obtain experimental information about the space-time structure of a heavy-ion collision is through two-particle momentum correlations. Azimuthally sensitive Hanbury-Brown–Twiss (HBT) intensity interferometry can complement elliptic flow measurements by constraining the spatial deformation of the source and its time evolution… (More)
