An arbitrary spectral synthesis scheme with parallel-connecting high-birefringence fiber loop mirrors (HiBi-FLMs) based on Fourier synthesis theory has been proposed and demonstrated. Three typical spectra of triangle, rectangle and sawtooth shape have been synthesized by implementing only four HiBi-FLMs. The experimental results are in good agreement with theoretical simulations with a goodness of fit of 0.9565. Furthermore, higher precise optical spectrum with narrower bandwidth can be obtained by adopting longer polarization- maintaining fiber and more sections of HiBi-FLMs. Besides, a typical application of arbitrary waveform generation has been implemented. By incorporating with frequency-to- time mapping, triangle- and sawtooth-shaped electrical pulses with repetition rate of 1 GHz and pulse width of ~860 ps have been generated
