This paper focuses on quantifying the outage performance of terahertz (THz) relaying systems. In this direction, novel closed-form expressions for the outage probability of a dual-hop relaying systems, in which both the source-relay and relay-destination links suffer from fading and stochastic beam misalignment, are extracted. Our results reveal the importance of taking into account the impact of beam misalignment when characterizing the outage performance of the system as well as when…
