Academic Areas: space inertial sensors
Since 2006, Dr. Liu has been engaged in the development and investigation of space inertial sensors. His highlight work during the PhD period is the measurement and testing for the performance of the inertial sensor on ground with precision pendulums, especially a developed 2-DOF torsion pendulum which can suppress the seismic noise by a factor of 10000. During the research period in Italy, Dr. Liu also contributed his effort on the DWS interferometer for the improvement of the torsion pendulum at the University of Trento besides the the data analysis task for LISA Pathfinder.
