Abstract
Recovering component spectra from terahertz measurements of unknown mixtures has been studied in this paper using nonnegative matrix factorization (NMF). NMF mathematically decomposes the spectra data into two nonnegative matrixes which describe the component spectra and the corresponding fractional abundance. Two basic algorithms in the class of this method, NMF and NMF with smoothness constraint (cNMF), were adopted to resolve the terahertz absorption spectra matrix obtained from a ternary mixture with varying compositions of Nitrofurantoin, L-Leucine and D-Tyrosine. The quality of the decomposition results was evaluated. The performance of the two algorithms on extracting component terahertz spectra was compared. The optimal result reached by cNMF in this study implies the capability of the NMF method for blind terahertz spectral unmixing. The attempt made in our work helps to further investigate unknown mixtures by terahertz spectroscopy.
