In this thesis, detailed HBT measurements obtained using the PHENIX detector at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) are presented for three beam collision energies (√sNN= 39, 62, and 200 GeV) and three collision species (d+Au,Cu+Cu, and Au+Au). The measurements are studied for their dependence on collision geometry and transverse mass (mT), and observations are made on how the small asymmetric system, d+Au, compares to the A+A systems for these dependencies.
