Abstract

Radiometry experiments, performed on human subjects, show that in the vicinity of a central frequency of 507 GHz the emission of the human skin is substantially nonequilibrium in its nature. The intensity of the radiation registered using a superconducting integrated receiver (SIR) [1], was correlated with the level of the physical and mental stress of subject under examination. This result suggests that human skin may generate sub-THz waves.
