Preliminary results from the correlation femtoscopy of identical kaons in the SELEX experiment (Fermilab E781) are presented. Kaons are selected in inclusive reactions of ΣC(Cu) interactions at an initial energy of 610 GeV. Kaon pairs are studied in all possible charged states: K s 0 K s 0 , K s 0 K+, K s 0 K, K+K+, K+K and KK. The source sizes of the hadronization region of neutral and charged kaon pairs are measured.
