We present the first measurements of femtoscopic correlations between the and particles in pp collisions at TeV measured by the ALICE experiment. The observed femtoscopic correlations are consistent with final-state interactions proceeding solely via the resonance. The extracted kaon source radius and correlation strength parameters for are found to be equal within the experimental uncertainties to those for . Results of the present study are compared with those from identical-kaon femtoscopic studies also performed with pp collisions at TeV by ALICE and with a measurement in Pb–Pb collisions at TeV. Combined with the Pb–Pb results, our pp analysis is found to be compatible with the interpretation of the having a tetraquark structure instead of that of a diquark.
