Microfluidic technology can control the fluidic thickness accurately in less than 100 micrometers. So the combination of terahertz (THz) and microfluidic technology becomes one of the most interesting directions towards biological detection. We designed microfluidic chips for terahertz spectroscopy of biological samples in aqueous solutions. Using the terahertz time-domain spectroscopy (THz-TDS) system, we experimentally measured the transmittance of the chips and the THz absorption spectra of L-threonine and L-arginine, respectively. The results indicated the feasibility of performing high sensitivity THz spectroscopy of amino acids solutions. Therefore, the microfluidic chips can realize real-time and label-free measurement for biochemistry samples in THz-TDS system.
