We demonstrate an integrated all fiber optical pulse generation system for laser fusion driver. CW laser signal generated from a single longitudinal fiber oscillator was modulated by phase modulator and amplitude modulator to form an optical pulse with shaped waveform and bandwidth of 0.1 nm. The pulse was amplified and split by fiber multiplexer to four pulses. Time delay of each pulse was controlled by synchronization unit and power of each pulse was adjusted by programmable variable optical attenuator. The four pulses were amplified and then transmitted through a 150 m fiber to the pre-amplify system. The fiber system can generate almost arbitrarily shaped optical pulse with duration of 0.2-20 ns, bandwidth of 0.1 nm and power of several nJ. As the front-end of the SG-III prototype facility, it has successfully lunched about 2.6 million shots of pulses. The fiber system is compact and highly stable and reliable.
