Programmable optical filters, WAVESHAPER®

The WaveShaper® family provides a range of programmable optical filtering and switching solutions for optical R&D and production test applications.
Based on high resolution, solid-state Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) optical engine, the WaveShaper® family delivers extremely fine control of filter characteristics including center wavelength, bandwidth, and shape. The WaveShaper® 1000, 4000 and 16000 provide additional benefits of dispersion and attenuation control.
The WaveShaper® instruments include a Web service API which enables the user to remotely configure the device over an Ethernet connection using HTTP commands from any software programming language.
In addition, a DLL package is available for Windows-based PCs ensuring full backward compatibility (“drop-in replacement”) with previous generation WaveShaper® units.
