Title: The transverse momentum dependence of charged kaon Bose–Einstein correlations in the SELEX experiment

We report the measurement of the one-dimensional charged kaon correlation functions using 600 GeV/c Σ, π and 540 GeV/Cρ beams from the SELEX (E781) experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron. K±K± correlation functions are studied for three transverse pair momentum, kT, ranges and parameterized by a Gaussian form. The emission source radii, R, and the correlation strength, λ, are extracted. Furthermore, the analysis shows a decrease of the source radii with increasing kaon transverse pair momentum for all beam types.
