Polarization resolution of LISA

Abstract

We discuss LISA’s ability to resolve different polarizational states of a gravitational wave with fixed frequency and amplitude. Assuming a binary as the source of the gravitational wave, its orientation is connected with the polarization of the gravitational wave emitted. Using methods of signal processing, we calculate the 1-σ uncertainty range for measuring the orientation of the source. PACS numbers: 9780G, 9585S, 0480N, 9555Y
