Digital communication with Rydberg atoms and amplitude-modulated microwave fields

Rydberg atoms, with one highly excited, nearly ionized electron, have extreme sensitivity to electric fields, including microwave fields ranging from 100 MHz to over 1 THz. Here, we show that

Wireless THz link with optoelectronic transmitter and receiver

This paper shows that wireless THz receivers can also greatly benefit from optoelectronic signal processing techniques, in particular when carrier frequencies beyond 0.1 THz and wideband tunability over more than an octave is required.

Terahertz wireless communications based on photonics technologies.

Recent progress in terahertz wireless communications using telecom-based photonics technologies towards 100 Gbit/s is reviewed.

Advances in terahertz communications accelerated by photonics

This Review covers the state-of-the-art technologies on photonics-based terahertz communications, which are compared with competing technologies based on electronics and free-space optical

Rydberg-atom-based digital communication using a continuously tunable radio-frequency carrier.

The extension of the feasibility of digital communication via this quantum-based antenna over a continuously tunable RF-carrier at off-resonance is studied and a choice of linear gain response to the RF-amplitude can suppress the signal distortion.

Wireless sub-THz communication system with high data rate

This approach provides a path to scale wireless communications to Tbit s−1 rates over distances of >1 km, and the photonic schemes used to generate the signal carrier and local oscillator are described, as is the fast photodetector used as a mixer for data extraction.
