Experiment DIRAC at CERN PS detects 349 ± 62 pairs from π−K+ and π+K− atoms and makes observation of exotic atoms consist of pion and kaon. It allows to measure a difference of S-wave pion-kaon scattering length with isospin 1/2 and 3/2: |a01/2−a03/2|. Values of pion-kaon scattering lengths are predicted in a frame of ChPT and LQCD. Therefore investigation of π−K+ and π+K− atoms gives possibility to check these predictions for simplest hadronhadron system with s-quark.
