In this paper, by using a simple mathematical inequality, we derive a $ new upper bound fkr the capacity of$ free space optical channel in coherent case. Then, by applying general fading distribution, we obtain an upper bound for mutual information in non-coherent case. Finally, we derive the corresponding optimal input distributions for both coherent and non-coherent cases, compare the results with previous works numerically and illustrate that our results subsume some of previous results in special cases.
