    Microstructured optical fiber was used as a gas cell in spectroscopic measurements of a low concentration of gas. Proposed technique allowed reducing gas sample volume to 0.01 cc. The gas flow inside core of fiber was simulated and result was confirmed experimentally. During the experimental work several types of fibers of various parameters were specially designed, produced and used. Core diameters ranged from 10.9 μm to 700 μm. Various cutting techniques for fibers such as using the fiber cleaver, Focused Ion Beam and Cross Section Polisher were investigated.
