We consider elastic scattering of atoms from elongated clouds taking into account an effective, finite duration of the collision due to the expansion of the condensates. We also include the quasicondensate nature of the degenerate quantum gas, due to a finite temperature of the system. We evaluate the pair-correlation function measured experimentally in Kheruntsyan et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 108, 260401 (2012)] and show that the finite duration of the collision is an important factor determining the properties of the correlations. Our analytic calculations are in agreement with the measurements. The analytical model we provide, useful for identifying physical processes that influence the correlations, is relevant for experiments with nonclassical pairs of atoms.
