II-VI WaveShaper® Instrument Family

The WaveShaper family provides a range of programmable optical filtering and switching solutions for optical R&D and production test applications. Based on II-VI'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, 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.
