Abstract
Delay lines provide the pathlength compensation that makes the measurement of interference fringes possible. When used for nulling interferometry, the delay line must control pathlengths so that the null is stable and controlled throughout the measurement. We report on a low noise, low disturbance, high bandwidth optical delay line capable of meeting the TPF interferometer optical path length control requirements at cryogenic temperatures.
