Paper Abstract

Recent advances in mid-infrared (IR) transmitting fiber optic technology have opened up new opportunities in biomedical technology and biological research. A high sensitivity IR fiber optic sensor has been developed which can be used to monitor physiologically relevant concentrations of biological molecules. The use of fiber optics will allow sampling at locations that are remote from the spectrometer with a hand-held probe. The fiber can also be used as a low cost, disposable sensor.
