Abstract: Terahertz (THz) technologies have shown great potentials for biomedical applications such as THz radiation effects on cells and spectroscopy of water studied in terahertz range. Water's strong absorption to THz wave restricts the acquisition of high frequency information, promoting the development of THz attenuated total reflection system (THz-ATR). Besides, the advances in terahertz applications have stimulated renewed interest regarding the THz bio-safety, which results in development related to biological effects studies of terahertz radiation.

Keywords: Terahertz spectroscopy, Protein, Hydrating water.
