A status of femtoscopy research in heavy‐ion collisions (HIC) at intermediate energies is presented. Two‐particle correlation functions provide information about dynamics of particle emission and probe the equation of state of asymmetric nuclear matter. Source size measurements two‐proton and deuteron‐alpha correlation functions allow to reveal the existence of a particle emission hierarchy in HIC. In the same reaction system, correlation techniques are also used to study sequential emissions of light particles by unbound states in 12C and 10C, showing that correlation techniques provide tools to explore the spectroscopy of unbound nuclei as well as the dynamics and space‐time features of nuclear reactions. The perspectives offered by the future radioactive beam facilities as well as the new detector projects promise to increase the scientific reach of nuclear reaction dynamics.
