The principles of gravitational wave detection are presented. The measurement of the propagating minute deformation of space-time remains an extraordinary experimental challenge. After a brief introduction to signals and noise, fundamental disturbances in the measurement are discussed, outlining how these have been sufficiently reduced to achieve detection.
