- We study a class of phase-space distribution functions that is generated from a Gaussian convolution of the Wigner distribution function. This class of functions represents the joint count probability in simultaneous measurements of position and momentum. We show that, using these functions, one can determine the expectation value of a certain class of operators accurately, even if measurement data performed only with imperfect detectors are available. As an illustration, we consider the eight-port homodyne detection experiment that performs simultaneous measurements of two quadrature amplitudes of a radiation field.
