This paper presents a study of millimeter-wave optoelectronic downconversion using the self-oscillating mixer concept. Baseband data are transmitted using a 40-GHz electrical carrier; however, detection only requires a much lower speed photodiode. Both homodyne and heterodyne configurations are presented with the former requiring injection locking which can limit the maximum baseband data rate
