Abstract: We report on the first demonstration of time-delay interferometry TDI forLISA, the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna. TDI was implemented in alaboratory experiment designed to mimic the noise couplings that will occur inLISA. TDI suppressed laser frequency noise by approximately 10^9 and clockphase noise by 6x10^4, recovering the intrinsic displacement noise floor of ourlaboratory test bed. This removal of laser frequency noise and clock phasenoise in post-processing marks the first experimental validation of the LISAmeasurement scheme.
