Photon Detection Rate At 656 nm To 1000 L.Y.



Photon Detection Rate At 656 nm To 1000 L.Y. (12661 bytes)

This graph shows the photon detection rate for a optical heterodyne receiving system as a function of range and transmitter powers.  A symmetrical transmitter/receiver telescope system of 10 m aperture is assumed, and the transmitting telescope is assumed to be diffraction limited.
