Abstract
We review results on the growth of glassy and crystalline materials inside photonics crystal fibres (PCFs), seeking specific sensing and light confining properties. Initial results refer to the infiltration of silver metaphosphate (AgPO3) glass inside PCFs, and the subsequent thermal poling of those composite PCFs for attaining plasmon resonance characteristics. Accordingly, the wet chemistry growth and characterization of crystalline ZnO layers inside PCFs is shown also. Finally, the use of laser etching technique for the inscription of relief periodic Bragg gratings on the capillary walls of a solid core, all silica glass PCF that exhibited demarcation temperatures near 1200 °C is presented. Ongoing work refers to the exploitation of the aforementioned PCFs for developing sensing, bio-sensing and actuating optofluidic devices.
