Abstract

We demonstrate time-domain attenuated total reflection spectroscopy in terahertz frequency region. Geometry of the reflection measurement is well optimized to obtain accurate optical constants of water or aqueous biomolecular system. We determine the dielectric constants of distilled water and sucrose solutions with this technique. This technique will open new aspects in the research field of biological systems in water.
