Description:

Terahertz (THz)-band communications are a key enabler for future-generation wireless communication systems that promise to integrate a wide range of data-demanding and delay-sensitive applications. Recent advancements in electronic, photonic, and plasmonic technologies are closing the gap in THz transceiver design. Consequently, prospect THz signal generation, modulation, and radiation methods are converging, and the corresponding channel model, noise, and hardware-impairment notions are emerging. These advancements pave the way to well grounded research directions on THz-specific signal processing and communication  techniques for wireless communications. In this context, this panel aims to go over the opportunities and challenges of communication systems operating in the THz band. It further motivates novel signal processing and communication techniques for MIMO-enabled THz sensing, as well as THz indoor localization.
