Nanorod-based glucose sensor.
  In this paper, a metamaterial-based sensor consisting of an array of nanorods is proposed. An analytical model, describing the electromagnetic response of the nanorods, is proposed. Such model is verified through the comparison to full-wave numerical simulations. A good agreement between analytical and numerical results is achieved (above 95%). The sensor is able to detect the presence of glucose and its concentration in aqueous solutions. The presence of the compound under study modify the sensor electromagnetic response, allowing to measure its concentration in an accurate way. The designed sensor may find application in many fields of medical diagnostics.
