    Abstract

    Absorption spectra were measured in a frequency range from 3 to 18 THz for various single-stranded deoxyribonucleic acids (DNAs) containing adenine as their bases. Nine absorption components in total, most of which can be assigned to either phosphoric acid or adenine, appear in the range observed. From the dependence of each absorption on the number of nucleotides in one DNA, the integrated molar absorption coefficient per nucleotide with adenine was estimated.
