Abstract. The article discusses the optical systems of gravitational wave detectors, which use Fabry — Perot resonators. The principles of operation of Fabry — Perot resonators in a gravita­tional wave detector are described. The analysis of the possibility of constructing intersatellite and onboard Fabry — Perot resonators for the project of a gravitational-wave detector in GLONASS orbits is carried out. The possibility of using a Fabry — Perot cavity for laser frequency stabilization by the Pound — Drever — Hole method is estimated.

Keywords: gravitational wave antenna, interferometer, Fabry — Perot resonator.
