  author={Nishtha Chopra and Ke Yang and Qammer H. Abbasi and Khalid A. Qaraqe and Michael P Philpott and Akram Alomainy},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology},
This paper presents experimental study of real human skin material parameter extraction based on terahertz (THz) time-domain spectroscopy in the band 0.1-2.5 THz. Results in this paper show that electromagnetic properties of the human skin distinctively affect the path loss and noise temperature parameters of the communication link, which are vital for channel modeling of in-body nanonetworks. Refractive index and absorption coefficient values are evaluated for dermis layer of the human skin… CONTINUE READING
