The photonic crystal fibre with a suspended core was analyzed in order to explain possibilities of its using in investigation of electrooptic and magnetooptic effects occurring in the molecules of gas passed into air holes in the fibre. As results from numerical analysis, even 20% of electromagnetic optical energy can be propagating in the area of the air holes. The obtained results indicate the possibility of scanning the electrooptic and magnetooptic effects in photonic crystal fibres with a suspended core in the case of considerable diminishing of the core (even below 1 μm) or in the case of light applying with its larger wavelengths.
