Paper Abstract

We proposed sensitive measurement of water content in dry material using low-frequency THz-TDS method. Simultaneous use of bowtie-type photoconductive antennas as a THz emitter and a THz detector achieves specific sensitivity in sub-THz region of ~0.3 THz, in which THz absorption of water is considerably decreased. Effectiveness of the proposed method is demonstrated through water content measurement in instant coffee powder in a glass bottle. The proposed system will be a powerful tool for extract quality control of water content in dry foods.
