We demonstrate a multiwavelength pulse source which utilizes supercontinuum generated in a normally dispersive holey fiber and spectral slicing in an arrayed waveguide grating. All channels exhibit almost constant pulse width and excellent noise properties, as verified by bit-error-rate measurements.
