Abstract Microstructured photonic crystal fibres (PCF) provide new ways to guide light, permitting for example tight confinement of laser light in a hollow core. We report recent developments in three research areas: laser guidance of particles in liquid-filled hollow core PCF, laser frequency conversion in hydrogen gas, and in-fibre arrays of metal and glass nanowires.
