Terahertz Wireless Communications: A Key Enabling Technology for Beyond 5G

What is next beyond 5G? Terahertz (0.1-10 THz) communication is envisioned as a key wireless technology of the next decade, to support 50 billions+ connected devices and Tera-bps data rates. But lots of work to be done from many different aspects, from antennas, transceivers, to channel modeling, communications, networking.

Chong Han's current research interests include Terahertz Band and Millimeter-Wave Wireless Communications (5G and Beyond), Smart Connected Systems and Internet of Things (IoT), Electromagnetic Nanonetworks.
