Finisar has introduced the A-Series of WaveShaper® Instruments

The A-Series WaveShaper family offers for most models significantly improved optical specifications, as well as an Ethernet interface with RESTful API for remote configuration and control, and an in-built web-server to allow control from any web browser.

The family of A-Series WaveShapers contains all capabilities of the previous generation WaveShaper instruments. It provides a range of programmable optical filtering and switching solutions for optical R&D and production test applications. Based on Finisar's 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, shape and, for WaveShaper 1000, 4000 and 16000, dispersion and attenuation.

The WaveShaper A Series 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.

The WaveAnalyzer High Resolution Optical Spectrum Analyzer allows picometer resolution spectral analysis in combination with a real-time measurement update rate of up to 10 Hz.
