Abstract

In this paper, the intrinsic material properties of human skin via THz Time Domain Spectroscopy have been investigated in a working frequency range from 0.1-1.5 THz. These measured material parameters are utilized to characterize the channel for inbody nano-networks. The sample for spectroscopic study is the real human skin and repeated measurements have provided consistent refractive index and absorption coefficient results. The refractive index in the working frequency range is 1.5, while abortion coefficient is 56 cm-1 at 1 THz.
