Fiber form nanophotonic devices consist of microstructured optical fibers which included
nanoscale elements. One approach to implement such devices relies on placing desired
materials into the subwavelength holes of photonic crystal fibers (PCFs).
In this talk, I will review our recent results on plasmonic PCFs, semiconductor fibers, highly
nonlinear chalcogenide‐silica waveguides and opto‐fluidic fiber form devices. As examples,
we observed spiraling plasmonic modes, very broad super‐continuum generation in the
infrared, octave‐spanning azimuthal mode polarization, distinct Mie‐resonances and strong
photonic band gaps. Furthermore, I will give an outlook about future experiments and
potential integrated devices.
