Noninvasive Glucose Monitoring by Mid-infrared Self-emission Method

Yen-chun Yeh, Sheng Yang, Fan Zhao, Dominik Schmidt

Abstract

In this article we present a non-invasive glucose monitoring technique by measuring human body mid-infrared self-emission. The human body is a black body radiator that provides a stable temperature and infrared radiation; thus the human body is considered a continuous radiation energy source in the mid-infrared range. The fingerprint spectrum of glucose shows strong peaks between 8.5 m to 10.4 m, therefore, measuring the self-emission form human body in the mid-infrared range allows estimation of glucose concentration. Using a simple and miniaturizable design with a tunable Fabry-Perot filter (FPF) and a thermal detector, glucose concentration can be measured through the human skin.
