interferometric detector

Gravitational wave detector that utilizes interference between light waves to detect minute changes in distance effected by a passing gravitational wave.

Some of the physics behind interferometric detectors can be found in our spotlight topic Catching the wave with light.

Exmples for interferometric detectors are GEO600 and the LIGO detectors.
