Abstract

Large-scale gravitational-wave detectors currently under construction such as the LIGO detectors use multiple-mirror resonant optical systems containing several surfaces at which the relative phase of interfering light beams must be controlled. We describe a tabletop experiment that demonstrates a scheme for extracting signals in such an interferometer corresponding to deviations from perfect interference.
