WaveShaper® 500A Programmable Optical Filter

The WaveShaper 500A 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 across the C-band.  The attenuation shape of the filter 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.
