Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Terahertz wireless communications is a rapidly growing and developing field driven by the rising demand for wireless traffic volume and data transmission rates. In recent years it has attracted considerable effort and investment in both academia and industry, producing a large number of scientific publications. The special issue on Terahertz Communications will showcase the current research in this area. Manuscript submissions are invited on all related topics, including:

  • Emitters and detectors
  • Beam steering and modulation devices
  • Demonstrations of wireless links
  • Beam propagation
  • System demonstrations
  • Application scenarios

And the collection of papers in the special issue will be also published as a stand-alone e-book.
