The LTP interferometer and phasemeter
The LISA Technology Package (LTP), to be launched by ESA in 2006/2007, is a technology demonstration mission in preparation for the LISA space-borne gravitational wave detector. A central part of theExpand
STE-QUEST - Test of the Universality of Free Fall Using Cold Atom Interferometry
The theory of general relativity describes macroscopic phenomena driven by the influence of gravity while quantum mechanics brilliantly accounts for microscopic effects. Despite their tremendousExpand
Interferometry for the LISA technology package (LTP) aboard SMART-2
The interferometer of the LISA technology package (LTP) on SMART-2 is needed to verify the performance of the gravitational sensors by monitoring the distance between two test masses with a noiseExpand
Macroscopic quantum resonators (MAQRO)
TLDR
MAQRO unites two experiments: DECIDE (DECoherence In Double-Slit Experiments) and CASE (Comparative Acceleration Sensing Experiment). Expand
Advancing fundamental physics with the Laser Astrometric Test of Relativity
The Laser Astrometric Test of Relativity (LATOR) is an experiment designed to test the metric nature of gravitation—a fundamental postulate of the Einstein’s general theory of relativity. The keyExpand
Parametric Study of HEMP-Thruster Downscaling to $ {\mu }$ N Thrust Levels
Many on-going European Space Agency (ESA) science and earth observation missions are based on precision attitude control and formation flying. All these missions impose strong requirements onExpand
LISA interferometry: recent developments
LISA, the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna, will be launched by NASA and ESA in the 2014 timeframe and will be the first gravitational wave observatory for the many fascinating sources at lowExpand
Drag Free and Attitude Control System Design for the LISA Science Mode
The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) Mission will enable scientists to detect and characterize gravitational waves emitted by different sources and events in our universe. LISA consists ofExpand
Picometer and nanoradian optical heterodyne interferometry for translation and tilt metrology of the LISA gravitational reference sensor
The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) aims at detecting gravitational waves by referencing heterodyne interferometry to free-flying (inertial) proof masses, located at the corners of aExpand
Successful testing of the LISA Technology Package (LTP) interferometer engineering model
The LISA Technology Package (LTP), to be launched by ESA in 2008, is a technology demonstration mission in preparation for the LISA space-borne gravitational wave detector. A central part of the LTPExpand
