    The Photonic Pandgap fiber was proposed as a new alternative for traditional glass-made gas cell used in spectroscopic measurements. Several PBG fibers were specially designed and produced for performed experiments. Gas flow within fiber was simulated and measured and ppm concentrations of ammonia gas were detected with short lengths of fiber. Final goal of the project is to produce portable and compact device for fast, ppb range measurement. Additionally, several fiber cutting methods were tested.
