Micro-structured Optical Fibers provide a broad range of interesting phenomena outside of their designed usage as longitudinal waveguides. Through the use of both static and dynamic microfluidic tuning, tapering down to sub-wavelength scales and the transverse probing of the micro-structure we investigate the nature of these phenomena. These novel regimes are also modeled using a variety of numerical techniques.
