TeraHertz end-to-end wireless systems supporting ultra high data Rate applications

Project description

Tapping the terahertz potential for 5G and beyond

The terahertz (THz) frequency range, between radio waves and infrared, can ‘see’ inside materials, meaning much research has focused on THz spectroscopy and the detection of things such as drugs and explosives. Its potential as an enabler of 5G and beyond is largely untapped. The EU-funded ThoR project is planning to exploit this potential with components operating in the standardised 60 and 70 GHz bands and aggregated on a high-performance 300 GHz radio frequency wireless link for a real-time data rate capacity of more than 100 Gbps. The project’s ultra-high bandwidth, high dynamic range transceiver operating at 300 GHz and state-of-the-art digital signal-processing units will support ultra-high data rate 5G applications.
