Abstract

A new design of pulse-contrast-measuring correlator, based on optical parametric amplification, is presented. It amplifies the wings of the pulse and allows high-contrast measurement with a low-sensitivity detector. The test system demonstrates an ability to measure a dynamic range of >1011:1.
