  title={Intelligent Surface Optimization in Terahertz under Two Manifestations of Molecular Re-radiation},
  author={Anish Pradhan and J. Kartheek Devineni and Harpreet S. Dhillon and Andreas F. Molisch},
The operation of Terahertz (THz) communication can be significantly impacted by the interaction between the transmitted wave and the molecules in the atmosphere. In particular, it has been observed experimentally that the signal undergoes not only molecular absorption, but also molecular reradiation. Two extreme modeling assumptions are prevalent in the literature, where the re-radiated energy is modeled in the first as additive Gaussian noise and in the second as a scattered component strongly… Expand

Analyzing the Impact of Molecular Re-Radiation on the MIMO Capacity in High-Frequency Bands
The scattering model and noise models of molecular re-radiation are explored to characterize the channel transfer function of the NLoS channels created by atmosphere molecules, which can provide non-line-of-sight (NLoS) paths in an environment that lacks scatterers and thus greatly enhances the performance of MIMO systems.
