A new technique is described for observing scattered particles in a scattering experiment. This involves a measurement of the correlated counting rates of two detectors and is based on an idea proposed by Hanbury-Brown and Twiss for astronomical observations. With this technique it is possible, for example, to explicitly measure the phase of a scattering amplitude.
