Abstract

We present two new techniques for estimating the autocorrelation function, based on the measurement of the mean number of clipped photocounts and on the calculation of the second-order factorial moment of a series of clipped data. The first procedure has the advantage of simplicity, although it produces a poor signal-to-noise ratio. On the other hand, the second technique gives a very good signal-to-noise ratio, when compared with other known methods.
