Providing 5G Coverage Using Optical Methods for Terahertz Frequencies
2020 IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference Workshops (WCNCW)
This paper studies the propagation of terahertz signals (100 GHz to 2THz) when using convex lenses. The terahertz band has a great deal of unexploited spectrum and therefore is ideally suited to provide ultra-high data rates at short ranges. The paper presents a channel model for terahertz when using convex lenses at the transmitter. The model incorporates channel impairments such as molecular absorption and lens characteristics such as a Gaussian intensity distribution. The model is verified against detailed measurements conducted using a terahertz system. We show that the model is in very close agreement with the measured data.
