Since the image separations produced by microlensing are inaccessible to observation, we are left to observe either a change in total amplitude or the time delay between the images. Spillar (1993) has suggested that a time delay might be observed in the autocorrelation of a microlensed signal. The time delays are of order a few microseconds and are easily accessible to a sufficiently wide bandwidth system. We calculate expected observational results using the Green Bank Telescope with a VLBA recording system, and find that brightness temperatures exceeding the Compton limit are required for detection.
