Zusammenfassung
Ultracompact binaries with orbital periods less than a few hours will dominate the gravitational wave signal in the mHz regime. Until recently, 10 systems were expected have a predicted gravitational wave signal strong enough to be detectable by the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA), the so-called `verification binaries'. System parameters, including distances, are needed to provide an accurate prediction of the expected gravitational wave strength to be measured by LISA. Using parallaxes from {\sl Gaia} Data Release 2 we calculate signal-to-noise ratios (SNR) for $\approx$50 verification binary candidates. We find that 11 binaries reach a SNR$\geq$20, two further binaries reaching a SNR$\geq$5 and three more systems are expected to have a SNR$\approx$5 after four years integration with LISA. For these 16 systems we present predictions of the gravitational wave amplitude ($\mathcal{A}$) and parameter uncertainties from Fisher information matrix on the amplitude ($\mathcal{A}$) and inclination ($\iota$).
