Laser interferometer application to broadband observations l.jpg

Akito ARAYA

(Earthquake Reseach Inst., Univ. of Tokyo, Japan)

Broadband observation …. requires low-frequency sensitivity

Advantages of Laser Interferometers:

・high resolution owing to short wavelength of light

・low drift using frequency-stabilized laser

・in-situ calibration with reference to wavelength of light

・free from EM noise or heating based on optical sensing

・operation at high-temperature (deep underground)

Laser-interferometer application to broadband observations

Two calibration method were applied

and both results were agreed well.

Accuracy of the self calibration

----- ~1% as compared with an STS-2 seismometer

・Self-noise level

----- well below the Low Noise Model (50mHz ~ 100Hz)

estimated from two identical laser seismometers
