Spectrum Frontiers: Terahertz

Presentation by Professor Theodore (Ted) Rappaort to the member companies of the NYU WIRELESS Industrial Affiliates Program. In this mini-lecture series Ted gives an overview of the expansion of communications into the Terahertz frequency spectrum.

Summaries of the results of experiments at the NYU campus provide insight into the development of communications potential at these very high frequencies (100++ GHz). Also discussed are the required behaviors of antennas, and the need to study the important topic of potential safety aspects of these higher frequencies.

As Ted says, “There is clear sailing up to 800 GHz.”
