Abstract
The technical note presents two new ways to build time-integrating correlators. The new methods are characterized by a tandem configuration of the Bragg cells that produces an almost common path for the interfering beams. It is also characterized by simplified, smaller illumination systems. In the first method, the illumination system consists of a beam-splitting cube used in an unconventional way. A hologram is used to illuminate the second system. In both cases, important reduction in the size and complexity of the systems is achieved. Results from the operation of both systems are presented.
