The helical sweat ducts (HSD) in human skin were anchored as the dominant structure of skin governing its electromagnetic (EM) behavior in the sub-terahertz band (sub-THz). We present an improved EM human skin model in the Y-band, which is rather complicated as it takes the fine structure of the upper skin layer into account, together with its dielectric properties. We present for the first time, the transmitting mode of human sweat ducts, as well as its receiving mode. In addition, by considering the eccrine sweat ducts as interactive elements with non-random distribution, we demonstrate for the first time an antenna-array-like behavior of human sweat ducts.
