This paper presents preliminary results obtained through the measurements of the distinguished method for sensing the contaminants in the water using terahertz (THz) wave leveraging a commercially available THz material characterization kit (MCK) based on vector network analyzer (VNA) techniques and Swissto 12 system. The primary goal of this work is to highlight transmission response of THz wave through the frozen sugar-water and salt-water over the frequency range 0.75 THz to 1.1 THz. The different concentrations of mixed solution were frozen and measured to observe the transmission responses of corresponding solutions at different frequency regions since each additive in water induces a unique transmission response that can be examined to detect specific substances that caused water contamination. The results presented in this paper pave the way for applicability of THz technology for sensing the water contamination detection.
