Access from EThOS:
Glucose absorbs electromagnetic energy in the near infrared (NIR) spectrum at characteristic wavelengths. An NIR beam is transmitted and as it passes through a solution this absorbance causes detectable spectral changes. The amount of spectral absorbance can be correlated to the concentration of glucose in the solution. In this study we used NIR Spectroscopy and micro sensors and detectors in order to detect glucose in small volume samples with economic instrumentation. The goal was to accurately measure the concentration of glucose in a solution held in a glass capillary vessel.
