  author={Emre Arslan and Ibrahim Yildirim and Fatih Kilinc and Ertugrul Basar},
Reconfigurable intelligent surface (RIS)-empowered communications is on the rise and is a promising technology envisioned to aid in 6G and beyond wireless communication networks. RISs can manipulate impinging waves through their electromagnetic elements enabling some sort of a control over the wireless channel. In this paper, the potential of RIS technology is explored to perform equalization over-the-air for frequencyselective channels whereas, equalization is generally conducted at either the… Expand
