Terahertz band: Next frontier for wireless communications

  title={Terahertz band: Next frontier for wireless communications},
  author={Ian F. Akyildiz and Josep Miquel Jornet and Chong Han},
  journal={Physical Communication},
This paper provides an in-depth view of Terahertz Band (0.1–10 THz) communication, which is envisioned as a key technology to satisfy the increasing demand for higher speed wireless communication. THz Band communication will alleviate the spectrum scarcity and capacity limitations of current wireless systems, and enable new applications both in classical networking domains as well as in novel nanoscale communication paradigms. In this paper, the device design and development challenges for THz… CONTINUE READING
