Interferometry in Space

Our department plays the leading role in the development of the space-based gravitational-wave detector LISA (Laser Interferometer Space Antenna). The department also is a major player in the LISA Pathfinder mission, which successfully tested key technologies for LISA from 2015 until 2017. LISA technology also flies onboard the GRACE Follow-On mission, which observes climate change trough changes in the Earth's gravitational field.
