Multi-link laser interferometer architecture for a next generation GRACE
When GRACE Follow-On (GRACE-FO) launches, it will be the first time a laser interferometer has been used to measure displacement between spacecraft. In the future, interspacecraft laser interferometry will be used in LISA, a space-based gravitational wave detector, that requires the change in separation between three spacecraft to be measured with a resolution of 1 pm/rtHz. The sensitivity of an interspacecraft interferometer is potentially limited by...[Show more]
