Skin depth is a fundamental material property that governs the electromagnetic behavior of materials. Unfortunately, there are significant and common pitfalls in the analysis of the experimental results on electromagnetic absorption for the purpose of determining skin depth. This commentary is aimed at covering theses pitfalls for the first time.
