Colja Schubert studied physics at the Technical University Berlin, Germany and received his Dr. rer. nat. (Ph.D.) degree in physics in 2004. In 2000 he joined the Fraunhofer HHI, working on interferometric switches for all-optical signal processing. After his Ph.D. he soon was appointed group leader of the Submarine and Core Systems group, which he is heading until today. Dr. Schubert is deputy head of the Photonics Networks and Systems department and has authored and co-authored over 350 scientific papers. Dr. Schubert served as technical program sub-committee member of the European Conference on Optical Communication (ECOC) in 2005 and of the Opto-electronics and Communications Conference (OECC) in 2019.
Thz Wireless Communication Systems – Challenges And Applications
The ubiquitous availability of communication services is the basis of our modern, digitized society. Over the last years, the proliferation of wireless devices and the increasing number of high quality emerging wireless services have raised the demand for spectral bandwidth dramatically, along with the requirement for high data rate transmission. Terahertz (THz) technologies, in particular the low THz frequency bands above 100 GHz, are currently explored as potential complement in future 6G wireless access and backhaul networks. In this talk, we will discuss the challenges and the potential applications of Terahertz communication systems, in particular in conjunction with the underlying optical network, and show experimental results.
