The terahertz frequency absorption spectraof DNA molecules reflect low-frequencyinternal helical vibrations involvingrigidly bound subgroups that are connectedby the weakest bonds, including thehydrogen bonds of the DNA base pairs,and/or non-bonded interactions. Althoughnumerous difficulties make the directidentification of terahertz phonon modes(More)
A detailed investigation of phonon modes in DNA macromolecules is presented. This work presents experimental evidence to confirm the presence of multiple dielectric resonances in the submillimeter-wave spectra (i.e., approximately 0.01-10 THz) obtained from DNA samples. These long-wave (i.e., approximately 1-30 cm(-1)) absorption features are shown to be(More)
Sub-terahertz (THz) vibrational modes of the protein thioredoxin in a water environment were simulated using molecular dynamics (MD) in order to find the conditions needed for simulation convergence, improve the correlation between experimental and simulated absorption frequencies, and ultimately enhance the predictive capabilities of computational(More)
In this work, a theoretical study of the coupling of TM polarized subterahertz (THz) radiation with periodic semiconductor rectangular slot arrays was conducted, using InSb as an example. Simulation results showed that the structure with 4-12 microm thickness provides over a 20-30-fold increase in the electric field at slot edges in a nanosize region ((More)
The variability of molecular vibrations and low terahertz spectra of biological molecules depending on the three-dimensional structure of molecular clusters, chemical bonding, and molecular concentration in the surrounding media is studied using computer simulations. The resonant terahertz spectra of biological molecules and their associations are described(More)
This work combines experimental and theoretical approaches to investigate terahertz absorption spectra of the DNA formed by the sequence oligomer 5'-CCGGCGCCGG-3'. The three-dimensional structure of this self-complimentary DNA decamer has been well-studied, permitting us to perform direct identification of the low-frequency phonon modes associated with(More)
The boundary conditions for a multicomponent effective wave function are obtained in the eight-band Kane model. The relations are established between boundary-condition matrix elements and the Kane Hamiltonian parameters in constitutive semiconductors. In general, these relations are incompatible with component-bycomponent continuity of the effective wave(More)

A simple and efficient modified harmonic-balance technique is presented. This new algorithm is suitable for the large-signal time-dependent analysis of nonlinear millimeter wave circuits. The accurate design and successful implementation of very high frequency nonlinear circuits requires both a detailed understanding of the physical operation of the active(More)
In this paper we present the results of our research of E. coli cells and cellular components, DNA and protein thioredoxin, using highly resolved sub-Terahertz (THz) vibrational spectroscopy. In this combined research, the results from experimental spectroscopy are analyzed via molecular dynamics (MD) simulation of vibrational modes and absorption spectra(More)
