In this note we describe a qualitatively different approach to measure the temporal correlation functions of multiply scattered light from fluctuating dense random media. Our approach combines diffusing-wave spectroscopy with Michelson interferometry. Among other things, the new approach should enable experimenters to perform correlation measurements on very short time scales. The method is described, and then some new physical applications of the method are discussed.
