Abstract

An infrared spectroscopy system based on a hollow-optical fiber probe for measurement of blood glucose concentration is developed. The probe consists of a flexible hollow-optical fiber and an ATR prism attached at the distal end of the fiber. This flexible probe enables measurement of oral mucosa and ear lobes that have blood capillaries near the skin surface. Experimental results show that absorption peaks of blood glucose are detected by the system.
