RESEARCH ACTIVITY 

Mike Cruise is part of the consortium which has built the payload for LISA Pathfinder, the technical pre-cursor to LISA- a space based gravitational wave observatory.

For many years Mike has been investigating the interaction of gravitational waves and electromagnetic fields.

Mike has pioneered the development of gravitational wave detectors for very high frequencies- above 1 MHz and has detectors observing at 14 GHz and at Optical frequencies in his laboratory at Birmingham. He is now studying the use of these techniques at low frequencies.
