Abstract: Proton-proton correlations and correlations of protons, deuterons and tritons with alpha particles from spectator decays following Au + Au collisions at 1000 MeV per nucleon have been measured with two highly efficient detector hodoscopes. The constructed correlation functions, interpreted within the approximation of a simultaneous volume decay, indicate a moderate expansion and low breakup densities, similar to assumptions made in statistical multifragmentation models.
