We recently introduced a reliable fabrication process enabling the integration of dielectric and metallic nanostructures directly on the tip of optical fibers1. It involves conventional deposition and nanopatterning techniques (typically used for planar devices fabrication) suitably adapted to directly operate on the fiber tip. By using this approach, and with a view towards possible applications, here we demonstrate the realization of different technological platforms based on the integration on the fiber facet of periodic and quasi-periodic metallo-dielectric nanostructures supporting localized surface plasmon resonances, that can be used for chemical and biological sensing as well as polarization sensitive devices.
