Single-crystal silicon wires are grown within the pores of microstructured optical fibers via a high-pressure fluid-liquid-solid approach. Precise spatial organization of single crystal semiconductor wires offers a flexible alternative approach to the self-assembly or lithographic techniques often used for patterning wires for electronics and photonics. This will enable new composite materials that allow for cooperative photonic and electronic phenomena.
