In this work we describe the characterization of high Q optical microresonators using an all fiber based system. Silica microspheres fabricated on a fiber tip by electric arc discharge are characterized using a simple interrogation system based on an adiabatic fiber taper coupler and on the collection of scattered radiation by a multimode fiber.
