Technical Tour: Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory

March 15, 2022
LIGO is located in Livingston, Louisiana, and is a national research facility.

The Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) detects the ripples in space-time by using a device called laser interferometer, in which the time it takes light to travel between suspended mirrors is measured with high precision using controlled laser light. Two mirrors hand far apart forming one “arm” of the interferometer and two more mirrors make a second arm perpendicular to the first.

LIGO is located in Livingston, Louisiana, and is a national research facility. The project is funded by the National Science Foundation through a cooperative agreement with the California Institute of Technology in partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
