The WaveMaker 4000A is a programmable spectrum synthesizer which allows generation of arbitrary spectral shapes in the
C-band. Shapes with widths (FWHM) as narrow as 10 GHz and slopes as steep as 600 dB/nm can be generated. Extinction
ratios exceeding 60 dB can be achieved. Also, adding signals (like modulated channels) from external sources is supported.
An internal amplifier ensures that total power levels of up to 14 dBm can be achieved.
Programming of the spectrum can be done manually via the GUI, by upload of a spectrum definition file and also automated
through an Application Programming Interface (API).
