Laser interferometry for the Big Bang Observer

Harry, Gregory M; Fritschel, Peter; Shaddock, Daniel; Folkner, William; Phinney, E Sterl


The Big Bang Observer is a proposed space-based gravitational-wave detector intended as a follow on mission to the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA). It is designed to detect the stochastic background of gravitational waves from the early universe. We discuss how the interferometry can be arranged between three spacecraft for this mission and what research and development on key technologies are necessary to realize this scheme.
