Abstract: In this work, a new type of optical fiber based chemical sensor, the sub-nanolitersample cell (SNSC) based gas sensor, is described and compared to existing sensors designsin the literature. This novel SNSC gas sensor is shown to have the capability of gasdetection with a cell volume in the sub-nanoliter range. Experimental results for variousconfigurations of the sensor design are presented which demonstrate the capabilities of theminiature gas sensor.
