Terahertz time-domain spectroscopy (THz-TDS) is a new coherent spectral technique. The spectral characteristics of Acesulfame-K in the range of 0.2-2.6THz had been measured with THz-TDS. We obtained its transmission spectrum, refractive index spectrum and absorption spectrum at room temperature in the nitrogen atmosphere. The results show that Acesulfame-K had the abnormal dispersions at 0.40THz, 0.66THz, 0.94THz, 1.79THz and 2.30THz. The vibration absorption spectrum of single molecule of Acesulfame-K is simulated based on the Density Functional Theory (DFT). It is found that Acesulfame-K has the obvious absorbance in THz region. This result shows that THz-TDS has a potential application in the field of food security.
