NYU WIRELESS is widely known to have led the world with its pioneering research into the millimeter bands that have been adopted for 5G, and is continuing to lead the world to higher carrier frequencies with wider bandwidths, for 6G, Terahertz (THz) and beyond.

Terahertz refers to frequencies between 30 gigahertz (GHz) and 3 THz, but generally the term is now being used by industry to mean frequencies above 100 GHz. The motivation for using these bands is that there’s a vast amount of bandwidth available in these frequencies, and vast new applications, such as imaging, spectroscopy and wireless replacement can occur.

NYU WIRELESS director Theodore (Ted) Rappaport recently led the center into the Millimeter Wave coalition, that is working to create momentum in the US for use of spectrum above 95 GHZ, and Professors Sundeep Rangan, Ted Rappaport, and a number of other faculty are working on imaging, position location, channel sounding, propagation modeling, network latency, and other topics vital for 6G and Terahertz communication and sensing systems. A recent SRC-DARPA initiative, ComSENTer (Communications, Sensing at Terahertz) has been awarded to Prof. Rangan in NYU WIRELESS.

NYU WIRELESS is focusing on sub terahertz bands at 140 GHZ, 220 GHZ, and higher. We have RFIC probe stations working up to 220 GHz, have several channel sounders for propagation measurements and channel modeling at 140 GHz, and recently received a major gift from Keysight, an NYU WIRELESS Industrial Affiliate, to spur our work in Terahertz (station tZz, have 0 0, 220, and higher). NYU WIRELESS is continuing to push the bandwidth and frequencies higher to mmWave, THZ, and beyond.

We are current working in collaboration with Nokia, to develop fundamental channel knowledge of 140 GHz indoor and outdoor channels, human blocking, scattering, imaging, and path loss modeling, and are working with Sony, another of our NYU WIRELESS Industrial Affiliates, to continue development of a phased array system that can measure the channel across multiple directions simultaneously through various blocking events.

In our research example simulating a home entertainment environment, someone walks to block the line of sight between arrays. As this happens, the system will offer secondary paths where communication is feasible. We are also understanding the losses induced by partitions in real world environments, and building ray tracing tools for properly predicting and validating wireless deployments at mmWave and Terahertz frequencies, and using the ray tracer for accurate position location and imaging. By looking at examples like this, and developing statistical and site-specific channel models, we can understand the feasibility of eventual end to end network applications.

NYU WIRELESS is a leader in understanding mmWave propagation. Our early measurements in New York City provided the world’s first demonstrations of the feasibility of micro- and pico-cellular mmWave networks in dense urban environments. Statistical channel models derived from these measurements have been widely used by many academic and industrial groups working in the mmWave space. One goal of our research is to continue the development of spatial and temporal statistical channel models from extensive measurement campaigns in both indoor and outdoor environments.

Millimeter wave (mmWave) frequencies, roughly between 30 and 300 GHz, offer a new frontier for cellular wireless systems. The vast available bandwidths in these frequencies combined with large numbers of spatial degrees of freedom offer the potential for orders of magnitude increases in capacity relative to current networks and have thus attracted considerable attention for next generation 5G cellular systems. However, cellular systems will need to be significantly re-designed to fully exploit the potential of the mmWave bands. This project considers MAC and networking-layer design questions for next-generation cellular networks in these frequencies.
