Excitation of Proteins by Electric Fields

  • Conference paper

Part of the Proceedings in Life Sciences book series (LIFE SCIENCES)

Abstract

We report measurements on the electrical absorption and dispersion of proteins, polysaccharides and their constituent aminoacids and saccharides, both at very low frequencies (υ = 10−3 − 106 Hz) and in the submillimetre and far infra-red \( (\tilde{v} = 10 - 550c{m^{{ - 1}}}(300\user2{GH}z - 1605\user2{TH}z)). \)
