Finisar Introduces Optical Test Instrument for High-Resolution Spectral 
Analysis in R&D and Production Applications 
Finisar Also Introduces WaveShaper 100S Tunable Optical Filter for
Production Applications; WaveShaper Workshop to Be Held at OFC/NFOEC 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/28/13 --   Finisar Corporation
(NASDAQ: FNSR) today introduced the WaveAnalyzer 1500S
High-Resolution Optical Spectrum Analyzer. The WaveAnalyzer 1500S
provides a unique combination of ultra-high resolution and high-speed
spectral analysis making it ideal for Research & Development as well
as Production applications. This optical test instrument utilizes
coherent detection and offers sub-picometer wavelength resolution
across the entire C-band of optical communication systems. For
example, a full C-band scan with 20 MHz spectral resolution takes
only 1/4 of a second while a d
etailed spectral analysis of a 100 GHz
window can be obtained in under 25 milliseconds.  
This combination of fast measurement speed, high sensitivity, and low
noise floor arising from the use of coherent detection dramatically
cuts test time. In addition, it enables R&D engineers and scientists
to obtain more accurate results in less time. The WaveAnalyzer 1500S
has a very small footprint and low power consumption, simplifying its
integration into lab and production test systems. 
Finisar also announced today the availability of the WaveShaper 100S
Tunable Optical Filter. This new filter has been optimized for use in
production test applications where the precise control over the
filter bandwidth and center frequency ensures support for current
test requirements as well as next generation Flexgrid(TM)-based
networks and subsystems. For test development, the WaveShaper 100S
can be controlled using Finisar's intuitive WaveManager graphical
user interface. In high-throughput test environments, the simple
Application Programming Interface supports both Windows and Linux. 
The complete WaveShaper family of programmable optical filters,
including the WaveAnalyzer 1500S, will be on display at OFC/NFOEC
from March 19-21 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Finisar's booth
WaveShaper Workshop at OFC/NFOEC 
On Monday, March 18 Finisar will conduct a WaveShaper Workshop at
OFC/NFOEC. This free workshop will be held at the Anaheim Convention
Center and will focus on recent advances in programmable optical
filtering. To register for this event or for additional information
