Charged pion two-particle correlation functions were measured in 0-30% centrality √ sNN = 200 GeV Au+Au collisions with the PHENIX experiment at RHIC. The measured correlation functions can be statistically well described based on the assumption of Lévy-shaped source distributions. In this proceedings paper we present the Lévy parameters of the measured correlation functions: Correlation strength parameter λ, Lévy index α and Lévy scale parameter R as a function of pair transverse mass mT , in 31 bins from 228 to 871 MeV, separately for positive and negative pion pairs. We discuss the physical interpretation of the mT dependence of the parameters.
