Abstract
In the present paper research results of broadband THz radiation influence in a range 0.1÷2 THz on some biological tissues are presented. Theoretical modeling of THz radiation propagation through the fat sample is performed. Experimental absorption spectra of samples of vegetable oil, nail tissue, skin tissue and blood are obtained. Spectra of these tissues differ in a range of 0.1 ÷ 2 THz. Also they depend on water content. From these samples vegetable oil has the best transmission.
