The body tissue dielectric parameters web tool generates ε (epsilon) and σ (sigma) values for various body tissues. A 4-Cole-Cole Model, as described in "Compilation of the Dielectric Properties of Body Tissues at RF and Microwave Frequencies" by Camelia Gabriel in U.S. Air Force Report AFOSR-TR-96, is used to compute the values.

  • Web tool location: https://transition.fcc.gov/oet/rfsafety/dielectric.html
  • The tool calculates parameters for frequencies between 10-6,000 MHz.
  • The tissue dielectric parameters are computed according to the 4-Cole-Cole Model described in "Compilation of the Dielectric Properties of Body Tissues at RF and Microwave Frequencies" by Camelia Gabriel in the U.S. Air Force Report AFOSR-TR-96.
