Short return-to-zero pulses (∼2 ps) are generated at bit rates of 40, 80, and 160 Gb/s using a fiber-optical parametric amplifier. The performance of the parametric pulse source is evaluated both back-to-back and in a 110-km transmission link. A receiver sensitivity of -33 dBm back-to-back was achieved after demultiplexing from 160 to 10 Gb/s. The power penalty at 160 Gb/s due to 110-km transmission was less than 2 dB. Very short pulses (0.5 ps) were also achieved when using the parametric amplifier as a compressor.
