Paper Abstract

As a new two-dimensional material, MoS2 has been extensively studied in terahertz modulation due to its excellent photoelectric properties. Herein, we studied a novel method for label-free detection of the carcinoembryonic antibody based on MoS2 nanosheets using terahertz spectroscopy. Protein molecules were fabricated on the COC substrates with MoS2 nanosheets. A self-made simple sample cell was used to get signal of protein molecules in a liquid phase. Computational analysis was performed using a classic sandwich structure model. The refractive index and absorption coefficient were calculated. As a result, the THz signal increased with the protein concentration increasing in 0.2-1.1THz. The cole-cole plot was also investigated. The effectiveness of MoS2 nanosheets for adsorbing protein molecules has been demonstrated, which can be used to detect carcinoembryonic antigen sensitively in the future.
