We present an approach to the fabrication of functional fiber-based devices by thermal drawing in the viscous state termed the preform-to-fiber approach. A macroscopic preform rod containing metallic, semiconducting, and insulating constituents in a variety of geometries and close contact produces kilometer-long novel nanostructured fibers and fiber devices. A material identification scheme and the challenges of composite material processing are reviewed, and several devices and applications are discussed in detail.
