Abstract: We report on the progress of developing a cryogenic delay line and integrated optics components. These are some of the critical components needed to enable farm, direct detection, interferometers. To achieve background limited performance in the 40 to 400 pm region, the interferometer optics and delay line must be cooled to near liquid Helium temperatures. The cryogenic delay line design incorporates a number of novel features and has been tested and characterized at liquid nitrogen temperatures. The integrated optics effort has focused on producing single mode spatial filters and beam combiners.
