A simple method to measure the small-signal impulse response of balanced chains of both clamped and unclamped erbium-doped fiber amplifiers using a recirculating loop is presented, and the experimental results are checked against theory. Index Terms-Dynamic response, erbium-doped fiber amplifiers, gain control, optical fiber measurement applications, transient response.
