We demonstrate a simple method of generating evenly spaced multiwavelength Brillouin comb by employing dispersion compensating fiber both for Brillouin Stokes generation and Raman amplification. Multiwavelength output of 798 Brillouin Stokes lines with average channel power of -17 dBm has been obtained with excellent flatness. Channel spacing corresponds to the Brillouin Stokes shift in dispersion compensating fiber and is estimated to be 9.4 GHz with the heterodyne detection method. Coupled interaction of Brillouin, Raman, and Rayleigh scattering explains the unique feature of proposed structure.
