Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) technology is widely used in many application in nuclear and particle physics. It offers the potential to develop new gaseous detectors with unprecedented spatial resolution, high rate capability, sizeable sensitive area, operational stability and radiation hardness. In this contribution, a brief overview of gaseous detector development at the University of Warsaw will be presented, as well as basic concepts, operational mechanisms and performance of the gas amplifier structures based on standard and non-standard GEM foils will be discussed
