Volker Quetschke

My primary interests involve experimental astrophysics, especially the use of light to measure gravitational waves. This splits into two research areas that are related and share the same core technology to measure the effects - heterodyne detection of light phases. The areas are mainly defined by either being related to LIGO or LISA.
