An approach to generating and distributing ultrawideband (UWB) pulses based on optical spectral shaping and frequency-to-time conversion using all-fiber components is proposed and demonstrated. In the system, the spectrum of an ultrashort pulse from a mode-locked fiber laser is spectrally shaped by an all-fiber spectrum shaper, to produce a monocycle- or a doublet-shaped power spectrum. Thanks to the frequency-to-time conversion in a dispersive fiber, time-domain optical pulses exhibiting the user-defined shape of the optical power spectrum are obtained. Experiments based on the proposed approach are carried out. UWB monocycle or doublet pulses are generated
