Abstract
Two-pion correlation functions in An + Au collisions at roots(NN) = 130 GeV have been measured by the STAR (solenoidal tracker at RHIC) detector. The source size extracted by fitting the correlations grows with event multipli city and decreases with transverse momentum. Anomalously large sizes or emi ssion durations, which have been suggested as signals of quark-gluon plasma formation and rehadronization, are not observed. The Hanbury Brown-Twiss p arameters display a weak energy dependence over a broad range in roots(NN).
