Future wireless networks are expected to be more than just a means of allowing people, mobile devices, and objects to communicate with each other. The sixth generation (6G) of mobile networks is envisioned to include high data rate applications and ultra-massive connectivity of things, including bio and nano-internet of things (IoT), tele-operated driving, unmanned mobility, haptic communications, unmanned aerial vehicles, and more.
Given the small size of nano-sensors, THz frequency is proposed for various sensing activities at this scale. However, it would be ideal to use the same radio frequency for communications as well. Furthermore, THz is also proposed as an enabler of extremely high data rate applications in 6G communications.
The focus of the talk will be on Terahertz antenna design and the new technology referred to as Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces (RISs), which will be an enabler for future 6G communication and its use cases in healthcare.
This event will be held in English.
