Paper Abstract

With increasing interest in wireless communications at terahertz (THz) frequencies, investigations on the link performance in indoor and outdoor environments are required. In order to analyze the signal impairments caused by outdoor weathers and indoor surface reflections, wireless channels are employed using a continuous wave (CW) signal at five discrete frequencies (100, 200, 300, 400 and 625 GHz) with a data rate of several Gb/sec. The link performance in rainy, snowy, and atmospheric turbulence weathers is analyzed by measuring the power and bit-errorratios (BERs). Scattering effects due to reflection by indoor rough surfaces are investigated. Predictions for power attenuation and link performance in these scenarios are conducted and compared with experimental results.
