Noninvasive blood glucose detection by Quantum Cascade Laser


Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) was invented in late 90s as a promising mid-infrared light source and contributed to the field of industry, military, medicine, and biology. The room temperature operation, watt-level output power, compact size, and wide tuning capability of this laser advanced the field of noninvasive blood glucose detection by exploring transmission, absorption, and photoacoustic spectroscopy. This review provides a complete overview of the recent progress and technical details of mid-infrared spectroscopy, using QCL as a light source for detecting blood glucose concentration for diabetic patients.
