Experimental demonstration of time-delay interferometry for the laser interferometer space antenna

De Vine, Glenn; Ware, B; McKenzie, Kirk; Spero, Robert; Klipstein, William; Shaddock, Daniel


We report on the first demonstration of time-delay interferometry (TDI) for LISA, the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna. TDI was implemented in a laboratory experiment designed to mimic the noise couplings that will occur in LISA. TDI suppressed laser frequency noise by approximately 109 and clock phase noise by 6×104, recovering the intrinsic displacement noise floor of our laboratory test bed. This removal of laser frequency noise and clock phase noise in postprocessing marks the first...[Show more]
