Microstructured optical fibers (MOFs) and photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) offeradvanced photonic and microfluidic functionalities in a single, integrated platform.This unique combination constitutes the main axis for the emerging ``lab-in-fiber''protocol. The microcapillaries of MOFs and PCFs can be used as a lab bench forattaching molecules, infiltrating nanomaterials or performing photochemicalprocesses, being useful in sensors and actuators development.
