(Strange) meson interferometry at RHIC

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The authors make predictions for the kaon interferometry measurements in Au + Au collisions at the relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). A first order phase transition from a thermalized Quark-Gluon-Plasma (QGP) to a gas of hadrons is assumed for the transport calculations. The fraction of kaons that are directly emitted from the phase boundary is considerably enhanced at large transverse momenta K{sub T} {approx} 1 GeV/c. In this kinematic region, the sensitivity of the R{sub out}/R{sub side} ratio to the QGP-properties is enlarged. The results of the 1-dimensional correlation analysis are presented. The extracted interferometry radii, depending on K{sub T}, ... continued below

In this kinematic region, the sensitivity of the R{sub out}/R{sub side} ratio to the QGP-properties is enlarged. The results of the 1-dimensional correlation analysis are presented. The extracted interferometry radii, depending on K{sub T}, are not unusually large and are strongly affected by finite momentum resolution effects.
