Terahertz wireless communications

III/V photonics: a basic THz communications technology compatible with fibre-optic networks

The growing capacity of wireless networks, driven mainly by new uses and growing mobility, has created a need for new communication systems. The terahertz (THz) frequency range, corresponding to long optical wavelengths (very far infrared) and very high-frequency electronics (at the limit of a transistor’s intrinsic capacity), is a prime candidate for these applications.
