Manufacture fiber amplifiers and lasers in a versatile and cost effective way while controlling rare-earths chemical environment becomes a real technology differentiator. A MCVD compatible Nanoparticle Doping Process has been developed to master with a higher accuracy rare earth amplifier and ytterbium laser fibers. Improved doped erbium fibers with C-band gain shape were obtained with much less aluminum content and unprecedented low background attenuation losses. This process should better show its merits in high power regime paving the way to fiber amplifiers and lasers for low cost new performances.
