Abstract:   (321 Views)
Using terahertz waves for intra-body communications between nanomachines is associated with dissipation during propagation, of which scattering is one of the most important effects. In this paper, scattering path loss with two different assumptions of air-enclosed and tissue-enclosed in subcutaneous fat is calculated and compared. The results show that for TM polarization, air-enclosed assumption gives smaller and greater scattering loss for frequencies less and bigger than 0.26 THz. The greatest difference between air-enclosed and tissue-enclosed results is observed for TE polarization at the approximate frequency of 0.4 THz.
