What is Skin Effect?
The skin effect is when an alternating electric current is distributed unevenly over the surface of a conductor. The frequency of this effect makes it more apparent. When the frequency is high, such as in radio frequency, almost all of the currents flow on the surface of the conductor. This is certainly relevant at radio frequency. The depth of the current that flows between the surface and a level is referred to as the skin depth. The operating frequency, as well as the resistivity and relative permeability of the material, all are factors that influence the skin depth. In most cases, the thickness of the skin is measured in nm/m.
