Abstract

A new method for calculating the heterodyne efficiency of an optical receiver is applied to specific optical systems looking through a turbulent atmosphere. The optical and atmospheric parameters which characterize the system efficiency are considered, and optimization of the performance of an heterodyne receiver is discussed.
