             Summary report

The Accelerometer project

The 10m prototype interferometer that is currently being set up in Hannover will serve as a test bed for technology upgrades for GEO-HF. Furthermore, it will provide an environment that should allow to reach the standard quantum limit (SQL) for an interferometric measurement. In order to reach the required stability it is planned to implement inertial sensors into the individually suspended optical benches inside the ultra-high vacuum envelope. The requirements on these sensors will be ideally met by the monolithic accelerometers as introduced by the VIRGO collaboration.
