Propagation characteristics below 100 GHz have been studied heavily in recent years and channel models at these frequencies are now defined by common standard bodies such as 3GPP. However, propagation characteristics and channel models for frequencies above 100 GHz are not well understood for common indoor and outdoor scenarios. Therefore, this project aims to develop a state-of-the-art channel sounder at 150 GHz to be used for RF propagation measurement and channel modeling analyses. Ultra-wideband propagation measurements in the140-160 GHz band with 4 GHz of RF null-to-null bandwidth will be conducted in different indoor and outdoor scenarios with a transmit power of more than 10 dBm and with 23 dBi gain horn antennas at the TX and RX. The channel sounding and channel modeling expertise of the group will be leverage to conduct these experiments in order to contribute to the understanding mmWave propagation above 100 GHz for future wireless communications systems.
