It is experimentally shown that six-channel C + L-band 80-GHz short pulse trains are generated based on parametric process in highly-nonlinear fiber (HNLF). By launching a pulsed pump and three-channel continuous wave (CW) lights into 1-km HNLF, three-channel signals are amplified and three-channel idlers are generated. The waveforms of the generated 80-GHz short pulses are measured by an auto-correlator. The bit-error-rate (BER) of each channel is analyzed numerically. In the back-to-back case, the power penalties of the generated channels are less than 1.5-dB.
