terahertz communication book publishedFormer researchers from the Telecommunications Software and Systems Group (TSSG), an ICT research centre in WIT, have published a new book titled ‘Next Generation Wireless Terahertz Communication Network’. Written by Dr Saim Ghafoor, Assistant Lecturer in Department of Computing, Letterkenny Institute of Technology, Dr Mubashir Husain Rehmani, Assistant Lecturer in Department of Computer Science, Munster Technological University and Dr Alan Davy, Head of Department, Computing and Mathematics, WIT, the book helps students and researchers to understand different aspects of terahertz communication and identifying different challenges in the field.

Increased demand

The rapid growth of data traffic in recent years demands new ways to achieve high-speed wireless links. This demand has become more apparent since the world began remote working in 2020 due to the COVID19 pandemic. The backbone networks, data centres, critical infrastructure, as well as people sitting in an office or at home all require ultra-fast and ultra-low latency wireless links. As a result, sophisticated technological advancements are required to reduce loading times on, for example, your laptop or tablet. The terahertz band has the potential to provide these high capacity networks where a user can download the file in record time.

Topics addressed

This book will be useful to students and researchers alike who are interested in pursuing a career in computer science. It offers a detailed insight into different aspects of the terahertz band wireless communication network which can realize the high capacity wireless links for future applications. It also highlights the terahertz channel characteristics and modelling, antenna design and beamforming, device characterisation, applications, and protocols. It provides state-of-the-art knowledge on different communication aspects of terahertz communication and techniques to realize the true potential of the terahertz band for wireless communication.

The book will be released in July 2021 and is published by the Taylor and Francis, CRC Press, one of the biggest academic publishers worldwide.
