Every year, the capacity of wireless communication systems experiences significant growth, leading to the need for more bandwidth. Many frequency bands are already in full use. Millimeter-wave and sub-terahertz bands offer the potential for vast bandwidth, but they also come with the challenge of atmospheric absorption noise. This noise affects the link budget calculation, and it can be addressed from both circuitry and communication perspectives. For the communication aspect, conducting detailed investigations into the capacity of these bands under various specifications is crucial for advancing future technology. On the circuitry side, it is vital to consider hardware-based noises and examine their impact on wireless communication systems in millimeter-wave and sub-terahertz bands.
This project will focus on the circuitry and communication side of millimeter-wave and sub-terahertz band noise investigations. We will investigate how atmospheric and hardware-based noise can affect link budget calculation in these frequency bands.
