Paper Abstract

We report here on bacterial biofilm detection with an optical fiber probe and a compact detection system. This probe was tested on cells of the Pseudomonas aeruginosa and other species of bacteria in planktonic and sessile forms. Optical signal changes corresponding to the number density of the bacterial cells were measured.
