Abstract

The large available bandwidth of terahertz (THz) channels makes THz technology a promising approach to achieve very high data rates for future applications. In this paper, we characterize the THz channel using detailed measurement and analysis. Based on the results, we choose three THz bands in which atmospheric attenuation is smaller compared to other bands. We propose two rate adaptive downlink THz algorithms in which the modulation order is changed based on the channel properties of individual receivers. We demonstrate data rates of several Gbps per user while maintaining fairness.
