Welcome to METERACOM!

Welcome to the project homepage of the METERACOM project. Meteracom is investigating MEtrology for TERAhertz COMunication.

Registration for the 1st International Workshop on Metrology for THz Communications is open:
https://www.tu-braunschweig.de/ifn/institut/thor-and-meteracom-workshops

The workshop will take place in Braunschweig on 28 June 2022 co-located with the final workshop and demonstration of the Horizon 2020 EU-Japan project ThoR taking place on 29-30 June 2022.

Project Objectives

The capability to performing measurements and evaluating these measurements in a proper way are crucial for the advance of THz communication systems. Metrology at THz frequencies is however still in its infancy and as of today it only covers detector calibration to characterization of ultrafast devices and to measurement uncertainty analysis of different spectrometer types available at THz frequencies. Meteracom addresses the grand challenge of metrology in THz communication measurements systematically, and in four distinct project areas:

  • Traceability to the International System of Units (SI)
  • Characterisation of the measurement itself
  • Metrological characterisation of the RF components and the propagation channel
  • Measurements required for enabling the funcionality of THz communications.
