Abstract

The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA), requires high precision displacement measurement between widely spaced pairs of freely floating test masses. We describe a proposed design for the optical telescopes that form an essential part of the laser heterodyne interferometry measurement system and discuss how the design and implementation will address the unique challenges of this specialized application.
