The space-time characteristics of particle production are measured by the correlation femtoscopy with use of quantum statistics (QS) and final state interactions (FSI) effects. Femtoscopy at lower energy was a key of importance at AGS, SPS and in the Beam Energy Scan (BES) physics program at RHIC.
Using femtoscopy observables we investigate possibilities to observe a difference from the first-order phase transition expected, according to some theoretical predictions, at low energies and the cross over one, to be occurred at high energies. The hybrid model vHLLE+UrQM is used as a baseline for this study. The possibilities to use kaon femtoscopy complementary to the usually used pion one are discussed.
