Abstract
Bose-Einstein correlations in pairs of charged kaons produced in a sample o f 3.9 million hadronic Z(0) decays have been measured with the OPAL experim ent at LEP. Charged kaons were identified in the central tracking detector using their specific energy loss in the drift chamber gas. The correlation function was studied in two-jet events using a double ratio, formed by the number of like-sign pairs normalised by a reference sample in the data, div ided by the same ratio in a Monte Carlo simulation. The enhancement at smal l values of the four-momentum difference of the pair was parametrised using a Gaussian function. The parameters of the Bose-Einstein correlations were measured to be a lambda = 0.82 +/-0.22(-0.12)(+0.17) for the strength and R-0 = 0.56 +/-0.08(-0.06)(+0.08) fm for the kaon source radius, where the f irst errors are statistical and the second systematic. Corrections for fina l-state interactions are discussed.
