THz Communications – A Candidate for a 6G Radio?
W the first 5G networks are about to be launched, the discussion within the scientific community about the next generation Beyond 5G or 6G has already kicked-off. One of the candidate technologies for a 6G radio access technology is THz communications, which uses spectrum mainly beyond 275 GHz enabling the use of channel bandwidths of several 10s of GHz. This contribution provides an overview on current state-of-the art of THz communications in research, standardization and regulation and discusses the challenges to make THz communications a promising candidate for a 6G radio.
