Skin Depth Calculator

The Skin Depth for a metal is determined using the Skin Depth Calculator shown below, which is one of the most useful tools that an engineer or student can use to determine the minimum thickness of any metal to be used at a defined frequency to minimize the loss in a transmission line or resonant circuit.  The Skin Depth formula shown below is valid at frequencies away from strong atomic or molecular resonances.

Frequency and Conductivity dependent Skin Depth Calculator:
  1. 1INPUT Frequency.
  2. 2SELECT Metal Conductivity from list of 10 metals, or type in a USER DEFINED Conductivity.
  3. 3OUTPUT – Skin Depth is Calculated in microns (um).
