Ultra High-Speed Wireless Communication Links Using Terahertz Frequencies

Using the terahertz frequency spectrum (300 GHz – 3 THz) opens up the possibility for wireless communication links that can exchange terabytes of data within a few seconds. The cost-efficient implementation is possible for the first time using novel terahertz monolithically integrated transceiver chips. Currently, the research team of this project is developing adaptive wireless point-to-point terahertz communication systems for indoor environments and validates their performance for distances of up to 10 m at data rates of up to 100 Gbps.
