Paper Abstract

Angular misalignment of one of the interfering beams in laser interferometers can couple into the interferometric length measurement and is called tilt-to-length (TTL) coupling in the following. In the noise budget of the planned space-based gravitational-wave detector evolved Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (eLISA) [1, 2] TTL coupling is the second largest noise source after shot noise [3].
