We developed a procedure for the fabrication of functional micro-structured optical fibers (MOFs) through a selective filling technique. In this method, we selectively infiltrate the conventional silica MOF with a UV curable polymer and construct a mold for the fabrication of the functional MOF. Subsequently, we can build the functional MOF by introducing novel materials such as nonlinear optical polymers, nano-structures, and water-based solutions. Such functional MOFs can find wide applications in areas that include nonlinear optics, spectroscopy, chemical and biological sensing.
