Abstract
To measure blood flow rate in ex-vivo circulation, we propose an optical Doppler flowmeter based on the self-mixing effect within a laser diode (SM-LD). Advantages in adopting SM-LD techniques derive from reduced costs, ease of implementation and limited size. Moreover, the provided contactless sensing allows sensor reuse, hence further cost reduction. Preliminary measurements performed on bovine blood are reported, thus demonstrating the applicability of the proposed measurement method.
