Wireless communication at the terahertz (THz) frequency bands (0.1−10THz) is viewed as one of the cornerstones of tomorrow’s 6G wireless systems. Owing to the large amount of available bandwidth, if properly deployed, THz frequencies can potentially provide significant wireless capacity performance gains and enable high-resolution environment sensing. However, operating a wireless system at high-frequency bands such as THz is limited by a highly uncertain and dynamic channel. Effectively, these… Expand
