Abstract


The aim of this paper is to propose a novel structure glucose sensor which makes glucose level measurement system more convenient, increases measurement accuracy and gets the sensor that can be manufactured applying cheap manufacture processes. The main focus is made on the design of viscoelastic cantilever type sensors with the embedded piezo-active functional element to drive micro cantilever in order to detect concentration of glucose in the physiological liquid. Analytical, numerical and experimental methods for design and analysis of viscoelastic sensor are presented.
