CSE organises webinar on “Nanonetworking in the Terahertz Band (and Beyond): From Nanomaterials to Macrosystems”
Department of Computer Science and Engineering organises a webinar on “Nanonetworking in the Terahertz Band (and Beyond): From Nanomaterials to Macrosystems” on February 20, 2021, at 7:00 PM IST. Dr Josep M Jornet, Associate Professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Northeastern University, USA, is the distinguished speaker for the webinar.
Abstract: The possibility to control matter at the atomic and molecular scale opens the door to new physics, which can be leveraged into developing new types of devices with unprecedented capabilities. For the Communication community, the plasmonic properties of nanomaterials and nanostructures enable the development of miniature transceivers and antennas, which
intrinsically operate in uncharted spectral bands. The extremely small size of the devices and the unprecedentedly large bandwidths that these can excess opens the door to transformative applications across scales. In this talk, the state-of-the-art technology in electromagnetic nano communication and networks will be presented by following a bottom-up approach. The fundamental physical properties and capabilities of novel plasmonic transceivers, antennas and antenna arrays at terahertz and optical frequencies will be described. The propagation properties of the generated electromagnetic waves and their implications for practical communication systems will be presented. Starting from the hardware capabilities and the channel peculiarities, innovative solutions at the different layers of the protocol stack will be discussed, all defining a roadmap that can transform over ten years of fundamental research into meaningful societal applications.
