A recently proposed method of characterising spatio-temporal disorder in broad area optical systems and based on time-averaged correlation functions is applied to a liquid crystal light valve (LCLV) with two-dimensional feedback and modulated input. The time scale of the disordered dynamics is estimated and found to be comparable to the relaxation time of the LCLV.
