Some similarities to a method of analyzing the frequency modulation spectrum of microwaves due to I. Berstein [Proc. Inst. Radio Engrs. 45, 94 (1957)] should also be pointed out.
M. P. Givens [J. Opt. Soc. Am. 52, 225 (1962)] has more recently also drawn attention to this.

We are here using the Fourier transform convention ø11(ν)=∫∞-∞ γ11(τ)exp-(2πiντ)dτ,which differs slightly from that used by Born and Wolf7 and makes the functions V1(t), γ11(τ), etc. analytic in the upper half—rather than the lower half—complex plane.

This is true even if a separate filter is dispensed with. For the photodetector itself has a limited frequency response and must be regarded as a low-pass filter.
