Abstract

We describe the first investigations of the complete engineering model of the optical metrology system (OMS), a key subsystem of the LISA Pathfinder science mission to space. The latter itself is a technological precursor mission to LISA, a spaceborne gravitational wave detector. At its core, the OMS consists of four heterodyne Mach–Zehnder interferometers, a highly stable laser with an external modulator, and a phase meter. It is designed to monitor and track the longitudinal motion and attitude of two floating test masses in the optical reference frame with (relative) precision in the picometer and nanorad range, respectively. We analyze sensor signal correlations and determine a physical sensor noise limit. The coupling parameters between motional degrees of freedom and interferometer signals are analytically derived and compared to measurements. We also measure adverse cross-coupling effects originating from system imperfections and limitations and describe algorithmic mitigation techniques to overcome some of them. Their impact on system performance is analyzed within the context of the Pathfinder mission.

Schematic of the laser, modulator, and optical bench (drawn to scale) comprised of four independent heterodyne Mach–Zehnder interferometers, referred to as “ x 1 ,” “ x 1 x 2 ,” “frequency,” and “reference” interferometer with the suffixes 1, 12, F, and R, respectively. Each interferometer is equipped with two quadrant photodiodes, the nominal diode “A” and the redundant diode “B.” The solid lines mark the beam paths in the x 1 (colored red, online only) and the x 1 x 2 interferometers. The dotted lines mark the beam paths of the reference and frequency interferometers.

(a) Definition of the optical bench reference frame. The horizontal angle ϕ corresponds to a rotation around the z axis perpendicular to the optical table, and the vertical angle η corresponds to a rotation around the y axis lying in the optical table and perpendicular to the x axis connecting the two test masses. (b) The diode quadrants are labeled A, B, C, and D from top to bottom. The PZT sweep axes (dotted lines) are rotated by the angle ε with respect to the quadrant diode axes (solid lines).

All the plots refer to the same measurement series, and all the data were recorded simultaneously. (a) The DC signals are plotted for a counterclockwise (upper curve) and clockwise (lower curve) rotation of the dummy mirror. The upper curve is fitted by an error function (solid line). (b) The DWS signals are plotted for counterclockwise (upper curve) and clockwise (lower curve) rotation of the dummy mirror. (c) The interference contrasts are plotted for counterclockwise (right curve) and clockwise (left curve) rotation. The points are interconnected for illustration only. (d) The linear central region of the upper curve in (b) was fitted to extract the calibration coefficient K 1 .

(a) Three main reference frames are depicted. The quadrant reference frame is rotated by an angle β with respect to the beam frame. The optical bench frame is rotated by an angle α with respect to the quadrant frame. (b) A simplified schematic of the measurement beam path. The incidence angles δ on test mass 1 and test mass 2 are designed to be equal under nominal conditions.
