The demand for a non-invasive, fast, and accurate glucose detection for diabetic patients is increasing nowadays. It is predicted that diabetic patient will increase from 415 million people at 2018 to 640 million people at 2050. Glucose is also present in saliva, therefore glucose concentration measurement in saliva can be an alternative way during diabetics monitoring. In this study, we measure 0-60% glucose concentration through optical systems. The optical system consists of an erbium-doped fibber laser, uncladded fiber bragg gratings that have been etched with nitric acid (HNO3), and optical spectrum analyser (OSA). The measured parameter is a Bragg wavelength shift due to changes in glucose solution concentration. The results show that the wavelength shifts to lower value (blue shift) as the glucose concentration increases. The sensitivity obtained from this measurement system is 1.2 pm/% in glucose solution. This result is a preliminary study to detect glucose concentration in saliva based on Fibber Bragg Grating which has advantages for diabetic patients such as simple setup, non-invasive, fast, and low cost.
