Abstract

A preliminary investigation is carried out on the artificial human skin tissues with and without metastatic melanomas using Terahertz Time Domain Spectroscopy (THz-TDS). Both the refractive indexes and absorption coefficients of artificial skin with melanomas are higher than the normal artificial skin samples over the entire frequency range between 0.2 THz to 1.6 THz. The reason is that tumour cells degrade the contraction of fibroblasts causing more water content in malignant tissues. This study quantifies the impact of melanomas on the optical parameters of artificial skin tissue and can help in techniques that will diagnose and prevent tumours at the early stage.
