Hey Everyone,

Could you please help me to figure out:
1). What are the advantages of using homodyne detection in free space optical communication system.
2). What can be the potential challenges in the implementation of homodyne detection based FSO link.
3). Is homodyne detection better option than heterodyne detection and Why?

Any response will be highly appreciated!

Thanking You.

      Hello Sahil,
      there is an excellent paper that you refer to it about a comparison between homodyne and heterodyne.
      “Optical heterodyning versus optical homodyning: A comparison” by Leonid G. Kazovsky
