    Search for Gravitational Waves with LISA
    Tom Prince

LISA is a space-based detector for gravitational waves consisting of three spacecraft separated by baselines of 5 million kilometers. LISA will be capable of detecting the merger of massive black holes virtually anywhere in the known universe, as well as the persistent gravitational waves emitted by galactic binaries. See for more details. Graduate students have the opportunity to work on LISA both in the laboratory on development of precision interferometric techniques, and on the development of computational techniques for the detection of gravitational wave sources. For more information regarding GRAs contact Professor Tom Prince, (626)395-6605, or, or visit Tom Prince's home page.
