Free-base porphyrin is an attractive candidate as a sensory molecule due to its high fluorescence efficiency [1]. In these studies, the self-assembled monolayer (SAM) method has been applied as the deposition technique of porphyrin molecules [2] (Fig. 1). To the best of our knowledge, this is the first paper reporting on the SAM deposition of porphyrins inside hollow-core photonic bandgap fiber (HCPBGF) and polarization maintaining fiber (PMF). HCPBGF (HC19-1550-01 from Blazephotonics) has 20 μm main hollow core and 4 μm small hollow cores. PMF (Fiber Optics Research Center, RAS) has two cores with 50 μm diameter and the central partition 10 μm.
