Abstract— This paper presents preliminary work on a method to increase the number of detection channels of a commercial 6-channel spectrometric sensor, by employing a set of multiplexed spectrally colored illumination sources. A demonstrator has been built and tested on a set of independent dyes. The results suggest successful enhancement of the number of detection channels. More tests are needed to provide quantitative performance evaluation, and to demonstrate viability in a clinical setting. Clinical Relevance— The technique presented in this paper shows promise to provide a viable method for multispectral sensing in highly-miniaturized systems, such as in-vivo sensing capsules.
