The femtoscopic scales for identical pions and kaons are presented at different centralities for the top energy RHIC and LHC A+A collisions in comparison with ones for p+p collisions. The later results are obtained in hydrokinetic model (HKM) in view of the quantum uncertainty principle. The three-dimensional pion and kaon emission source functions are extracted from the HKM model simulations for A+A collisions. The model describes well the experimental data, previously obtained by the PHENIX and STAR collaborations using the imaging technique. In particular, the HKM reproduces the non-Gaussian heavy tails of the source function in the pair transverse momentum (out ) and beam (long) directions, observed in the pion case and practically absent for kaons. The role of the rescatterings and long-lived resonances decays in forming of the long range tails is investigated. The prediction is made for the source functions in the LHC Pb+Pb collisions at √s= 2.76 TeV. As for the baryon-baryon correlations, the source functions of pp, pΛ and p ̅Λ pairs are found in Au+Au collisions and used by means of FSI correlation technique for an extraction of the scattering lengths in two-baryon systems. The role of residual correlations in formation of the total baryon-baryon correlation function is analyzed. The talk is based on the results of the following works: 1. Iu.A. Karpenko, Yu.M. Sinyukov.
