Abstract

The correlations of identical particles, historically known as Hanbury-Brown and Twiss (HBT) effect, have been widely studied in high energies collisions for decades. They constitute a well-established tool to probe the dimensions of the emitting systems formed in these collisions. This research project aims to investigate the correlations of particles produced in proton-proton (pp) and lead-lead (PbPb) collisions at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) with the Central Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector. Measurements of such correlations were performed at CMS in pp collisions. The research plan aims at extending such analysis and participate in several research projects interconnected with this topic. (AU)
