By focusing on the diverse range of applications that THz communications/technology can offer, specifically in the domain of advanced agricultural systems, we define a theoretical model for an approximation of the transmitted/reflected electric fields for THz radiation through plant leaves. The provided model can be modified to accommodate scenarios with single or multiple layers of leaves, given the permittivity of specific leaf types. In addition, we provide measured results of the… CONTINUE READING
