Abstract

The LISA Technology Package is an experiment that will fly onboard the LISA demonstrator mission, LISA Pathfinder. Integral to the LISA Technology Package and to LISA are ultra-stable optical benches capable of measuring inertial test mass positions to below 10pm/Hz over 1000 second timescales. Aspects of the current design and construction of the LISA Technology Package optical bench interferometer are described.
