An optical method for measurement of the wavelength of a single high-power nanosecond microwave pulse is described. The method is realized in the centimeter band. The minimum microwave-pulse duration is units of nanoseconds; the power limit is hundreds of kilowatts or more. The accuracy of wavelength measurement reaches 1%. The method is based on photographic recording of the standing-wave discharge and is not subject to electrical induction.
