Aqueous solutions of the water-soluble porphyrin 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(4-sulfonatophenyl)porphyrina tomanganese(III) acetate were inserted into the holes of a photonic crystal fiber, and the porphyrin absorption bands were identified. Results were obtained for three concentrations. The porphyrins in water show no surface interactions with the silica walls of the capillary channels. We discuss the implications for future hybrid electronic and photonic fiber devices.
