Paper Abstract

TAMA is a project to construct and operate a 300-m arm- length laser interferometer (TAMA300) to detect gravitational waves from astronomical sources. The detector comprises two orthogonally oriented Fabry-Perot (FP) cavities with 300-m length. Each FP cavity has a finesse of 520, and is illuminated by an injection-locked 10-W Nd:YAG laser. We are planning to start the first full operation of the detector system in March 2000.
