Author Affiliations +
It is possible to use of 3D lateral and longitudinal static speckle fields to determine the location of the optical axis in a system. In this manuscript we examine a variation of this idea where we use the 3D temporal correlation properties of multiple speckle fields to determine the axis. Previously it was shown how a spatial averaging approach could be used to estimate the 3D speckle orientation, here we compare the characteristics of this spatial averaging technique to a temporal averaging approach (where multiple speckle fields are used to produce an ensemble), experimental results are compared with the theoretical predictions and we present some conclusions.
