We have proposed an optical pulse synthesizer comprising of optical modulators and an arrayed waveguide grating. This system can generate arbitrary waveform pulses in combination with a broad-band optical frequency comb. We achieved the generation of the Gaussian pulses with a width of 4.7 ps, double-Gaussian pulses, and rectangular-shaped pulses by arbitrary waveform pulse synthesis, at the high repetition rate of 10 GHz.
