Date: 2017/11/9             Browse: 243

Speaker:   Prof. Chong Han

Time:         Nov 9,  3:00 pm-4:00 pm  

Location:   Room 1A-200, SIST Building

Inviter:     Prof. Yu Liu


Terahertz (THz)-band (0.1-10 THz) communication is envisioned as a key wireless technology of the next decade. The THz band will help overcome the spectrum scarcity problems and capacity limitations of current wireless networks, by providing an unprecedentedly large bandwidth. In addition, THz communications will enable a plethora of long-awaited applications, both at the nano-scale and at the macro-scale, ranging from wireless massive-core computing architectures and instantaneous data transfer among non-invasive nano-devices, to ultra-high-definition content streaming among mobile devices and wireless high-bandwidth secure communications. This talk will cover state-of-the-art advancement, open challenges, and possible research directions in channel modeling and physical layer design of THz wireless communications.
