WaveShaper® 1000A Programmable Optical Filter
The WaveShaper 1000A Programmable Optical Filter supports arbitrary user-generated channel and filter shapes. The bandwidth can be set from 10 GHz up to more than 5 THz with 1 GHz increments for the standard C- or L-band version of the 1000A. The X version - which covers C+L band - supports filter bandwidths from 20 GHz to 9 THz. The required filter shape (both amplitude and phase) can be generated by the user and then loaded into the WaveManager software, which translates the user specification into the required optical shape. Band-stop and optical comb filters are also supported as is optical power control over a range of 30 dB for all filter types.
