Abstract

An experimental investigation of the role of fiber optic detector probes in laser light scattering is presented. A quantitative comparison between different detector configurations is accomplished by measuring the time taken for one million photocounts to be accumulated in the extrapolated zeroth delay channel of the net unnormalized intensity time correlation function. A considerable reduction in the accumulation time is achieved by relaxing a rather stringent requirement for the spatial coherence of the optical field.
