Institute of Communications Technology – Department of Mobile Radio Systems

The Department of Mobile Radio Systems headed by Prof. Thomas Kürner deals with radio transmission in all its facets. The fields of research of the department range from radio propagation to link and system level simulations of communication systems. At the Institute, a UWB mm-wave channel sounder is deployed in the channel characterization and modelling of future multi-gigabit indoor communication systems in the THz range.

In the Meteracom project, the IfN contributes with its expertise in channel sounding, channel propagation characterization and simulation of communication systems. Furthermore the IfN will coordinate the project and is responsible for the project related homepage.

Department of Terahertz Photonics

The Terahertz Photonics group (TPG) headed by Prof. Thomas Schneider is dedicated to integrated photonics, nonlinear optical sensing and signal processing like stimulated Brillouin scattering for next-gen optical communication. The group has successfully demonstrated optical sensing and nonlinear optical signal processing for several RF/microwave applications based on stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS). Currently, the group is working with other project partners on photonics enabled Nyquist engine, high-speed optical digital to analog converter (DAC) and ultra-wideband optical sampler for high-speed optical communication and metrology purposes.

In the Meteracom project, the Terahertz Photonics group will work on metrology for high-bandwidth sampling systems to develop a wide-band sampling metrology and provide an exact as possible definition of the difference between ideal and practical sampling. Additionally, it should allow the comparison of THz-communication sampling systems.

Institute of Communication Networks

Prof. Admela Jukan’s group focuses on emerging architecture and systems for network control and management, in theory and practice as well as system performance analysis. In Meteracom project, the research group studies the applications of machine learning models for channel estimation problem in Thz communications, architectural design of the related control plane and novel resource reservation protocols for secure and reliable space division multiplexed THz communications.
