Wigner and Husimi quasi-distributions, owing to their functional regularity, give the two archetypal and equivalent representations of all observable-parameters in continuous-variable quantum information. Balanced homodyning (HOM) and heterodyning (HET) that correspond to their associated sampling procedures, on the other hand, fare very differently concerning their state or parameter reconstruction accuracies. We present a general theory of a now-known fact that HET can be tomographically more… Expand

Superiority of heterodyning over homodyning: An assessment with quadrature moments
We examine the moment-reconstruction performance of both the homodyne and heterodyne (doublehomodyne) measurement schemes for arbitrary quantum states and introduce moment estimators that optimizeExpand
Evading Vacuum Noise: Wigner Projections or Husimi Samples?
It is experimentally demonstrate that heterodyne detection outperforms homodyne Detection for almost all Gaussian states, the details of which depend on the squeezing strength and thermal noise. Expand
Surmounting intrinsic quantum-measurement uncertainties in Gaussian-state tomography with quadrature squeezing
It is shown analytically that the competition between the errors incurred during tomogram processing in homodyne detection and the Arthurs-Kelly uncertainties arising from simultaneous incompatible quadrature measurements in heterodyne Detection can often lead to the latter giving more accurate estimates.

The reconstruction of the quantum state of light from the homodyne photocounting statistics of a single, realistic photodetector is proposed and it is shown that perturbing effects due to classical noise of the local oscillator are small. Expand

Operational theory of homodyne detection
We discuss a balanced homodyne detection scheme with imperfect detectors in the framework of the operational approach to quantum measurement. We show that a realistic homodyne measurement isExpand
