We demonstrate a new nonlinear optical field cross-correlation technique for two-dimensional imaging through scattering media. The technique, the coherently amplified Raman polarization gate, relies on both the polarization and coherence sensitivity of broadband stimulated Raman amplification to produce a high-contrast gate with temporal resolution of the order of the inverse bandwidth of the pump.
