The COSETI Observatory

  • Heterodyning Array of PIN Photodetectors.

    • Array is “illuminated” by local-oscillator laser.
    • Heterodyne mixing occurs at each photodetector.
      • Use conventional RF super-heterodyne receiving techniques to recover signal at each pixel.
      • Pixels may be sequentially sampled by a common super-heterodyne receiver.
