The supercontinuum (SC) generation in conventional dispersion-shifted fiber (DSF) at the repetition rate of 10 GHz with a three-stage compressed gain-switched distributed feedback (DFB) laser as pump source was demonstrated. A novel SC pulse source with a bandwidth up to 120 nm was obtained. At the same time, the stable, narrow pulses with pulsewidth of 9.2 ps and time-bandwidth product of 0.46 were filtered out across the whole SC bandwidth.
