NNSE 508 EM Lecture #5 3 Skin depth In a good conductor (metal) the attenuation of the wave is determined by attenuation constant a : The skin depth of material is the depth to which a uniform plane wave can penetrate before it is attenuated by a factor of 1/e . For planar surfaces, skin depth is given as: Penetration depends on frequency ( f -1/2 ), conductivity and permeability. The skin effect is the result of induction: time-varying magnetic field is accompanied by a time varying electric field time varying current secondary fields Skin-effect implies dissipation of the wave power by the current 2   12 skin 

NNSE 508 EM Lecture #5 4 Skin effect Another result of skin effect is non- uniform distribution of current in conductors at high frequencies Current density drops into the metal at high frequencies due to screening of the EM field by the induced current Usually in engineering disciplines it is modeled as if all current flowed in -thick outer layer of conductor As a result, resistance of a thick conductor increase with frequency.
