Skin cancer diagnostic tool based on micromachined interface for high-resolution THz spectroscopy (MTSSC)

This project focuses on developing a micromachined interface for microwave/THz characterization of skin tissue, mainly for distinguishing skin anomalies from healthy tissue and for distinguishing malign skin tumors from benign ones.
