Paper Abstract

Non-invasive monitoring of the glucose level is a key technology for improved diagnosis and therapy for Diabetes patients. Optical measurement techniques like polarimetry measuring at the human eye offer promising properties for non-invasive and painless application. This article presents a polarimetric measurement system utilizing the polarizing properties of the Aqueous Humour (AH) for quantative glucose measurements. In particular the special requirements of in-vivo measurements for such a system are discussed.
