We develop a method for the fabrication of functional microstructured optical fibers (MOFs) by selectively filling the air holes with liquid phase materials, where we utilize the dependence of filling speed on the size of the air holes. As a demonstration, we construct a hybrid MOF by filling the center hollow core of a triangular lattice photonic crystal fiber with dye-doped curable polymer, and experimentally observe the two-photon fluorescence from the hybrid MOF.
