    We make predictions for the kaon interferometry measurements in Au+Au collisions at the relativistic heavy ion collider (RHIC). A first-order phase transition from a thermalized quark-gluon plasma (QGP) to a gas of hadrons is assumed for the transport calculations. The fraction of kaons that are directly emitted from the phase boundary is considerably enhanced at large transverse momenta KT ∼ 1 GeV/c. In this kinematic region, the sensitivity of the Rout/Aside ratio to the QGP properties is enlarged. The results of the one-dimensional correlation analysis are presented. The extracted interferometry radii, depending on KT, are not unusually large and are strongly affected by finite momentum resolution effects.
