We introduce a new technique to measure the amplified spontaneous emission and signal gain of the fiber amplifier. We have constructed a measurement system that consists of a tunable signal source, a fast chopper, detectors, and a microcomputer. This amplifier measurement system can be used to characterize amplifier properties as a function of input signal wavelength and power.
