We calculate Hanbury Brown - Twiss (HBT) correlation functions as well as direct photon spectra from an anisotropic quark-gluon plasma (QGP) in order to investigate possible indirect signals of photon double pulses on the yoctosecond timescale, which arise at low emission angles.
Both quantities show a dependence on the isotropization time of the QGP.
We find that HBT correlations exhibit non-trivial features, such as plateaus or a second peak. The ratio of two spectra measured at different emission angles is especially sensitive to early isotropization times.
