Paper Abstract

Prototypes of fiberoptic sensors for Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometers, based on commercially available middle infrared (MIR)-fibers, are developed. Their use in the currently central field of medical diagnostics is demonstrated. The non-toxic, flexible MIR-fibers, transparent in the middle infrared region (from 4 mm to 16 mm), are used in these sensors as remote attenuated total reflection (ATR) elements. These sensors, in which FTIR spectrometer combined with remote fiberoptic sensors could be used in cancer diagnostics, glucose content measurements as well as in other areas of medical diagnostics, in which spectroscopic analysis of human tissues and human extra-cell liquids could be used for diagnostic purpose. The additional minimal invasive medical diagnostics in vivo will become possible in the future with such fiberoptic sensors.
