This paper outlines the most recent work at nLIGHT Oy (formerly Liekki Oy). We give an overview of the current state of the nLIGHT active fiber fabrication technology, discuss the capability of the manufacturing process, and review our results and the results of other groups on the reliability aspects of the manufactured fibers. We also present refractive index tailored and gain tailored Yb doped fibers as examples of recent fiber development.
