Measures the temporal coherence of a cw laser using self-diffraction from a thin film of a rhodamine 6G-doped boric-acid glass. Nominal input power requirements for the technique; Attainment of mutual coherence function of beams; Proportionality of self-diffraction intensity to the visibility of fringes.
