We have investigated the haematocrit dependence of the electrical parameters (relative permittivity and conductivity) of blood. The measuring set-up, composed of an impedancemeter (HP 4291 A), an open-ended coaxial line and a temperature controlling set, was designed for dielectric measurements in the 1 MHz to 1 GHz frequency range. Measurements were(More)
In this paper, we present the results of non-invasive blood glycaemia measurements. The blood used in the measurements was calf blood. The measurement method uses an electromagnetic sensor based on eddy currents, which allows the detection of blood glycaemia levels through the variation of the dielectric parameters of the blood. A change in blood glucose(More)
In this paper, we develop a non-invasive method to measure glycaemia levels. The method is based on an electromagnetic sensor associated with a specific electronic card. Results obtained on whole pig blood show the influence of the temperature and the linearity between the glucose concentration and the process card signal output. Measurements are(More)
Compressed sensing (CS) is a technique that is suitable for compressing and recovering signals having sparse representations in certain bases. CS has been widely used to optimize the measurement process of bandwidth and power constrained systems like wireless body sensor network. The central issues with CS are the construction of measurement matrix and the(More)
This paper presents the design of a four electrode impedance measurement circuit dedicated to bioimpedance embedded applications. It extends the use of the AD5933 measurement chip to allow it to operate in a four electrode configuration in order to limit the effects of the parasitic impedances between the medium under test and the electrodes. The circuit(More)
In this paper we present an inexpensive electronic measurement instrumentationdeveloped in our laboratory, to measure and plot the impedance of a loaded fuel cell orbattery. Impedance measurements were taken by using the load modulation method. Thisinstrumentation has been developed around a VXI system stand which controls electroniccards. Software under(More)
This paper presents first results obtained using a novel approach for non-invasive measurement of glucose content. We use a network analyzer, which is used to measure T/R, the modulus of the Transmission to the Reference signal. The undertest solution is placed in the center of a bobbin and plays the role of the self-inductive core. The variation of the(More)
Arrhythmia and conduction disorders can be treated by intracardiac ablation. The paper presents an original intracardiac catheter ablation method using a high-frequency (HF) electromagnetic power source. A high-frequency signal is emitted through an electrophysiological catheter introduced into the femoral vein and passed along the course of that vein into(More)

In order to further understand the behavior of PEM fuel cell and optimize their performance, it is necessary to perform measurements in real time. The internal impedance measurement by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) is of great importance. In this work, we present the impedance measurement method of a PEM fuel cell by electrochemical impedance(More)
