Paper Abstract

Experimental absorption spectrum in THz frequency range of fat, sugar, hemoglobin and water are presented. Characteristic features for some of those substances where found in absorption and refraction spectrum. Changing laser wavelength and nonlinear crystal thickness THz generation and detection was optimized for certain frequency, allowing one to increase spectrometer sensitivity for biological samples.
