Investigation of the water absorption in polyamide and wood plastic

We employed terahertz time-domain spectroscopy to study the sorption of water into two different materials: polyamide (PA) and wood plastic composite (WPC). The dielectric properties of the samples were determined for frequencies between 0.2 and 1.0 THz for varying water contents. A model for the dielectric behaviour
