A new type of glucose sensor based on luminescence quenching (LUQUEN) is proposed. In this LUQUEN principle the concentration induced quenching is enlarged by radiationless (excited-state) energy transfer within the luminescent material. We describe the integrated optical detection part and the chemo-optical interface, in which the concentration induced optical changes are based on the binding of glucose. Some experiments on the internal energy transfer are reported, and the results are discussed.
