Abstract

We propose and experimentally demonstrate a photonics-aided 2 × 2 multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless Terahertz-wave (THz-wave) signal transmission system, which realizes 6 × 20-Gb/s six-channel polarization division multiplexing quadrature-phase-shift-keying THz-wave signal delivery over 10-km wireline single-mode fiber- link and 142-cm wireless 2 × 2 MIMO link with a bit-error ratio under the hard-decision forward-error-correction threshold of 3.8 × 10−3. Our employed multi-carrier frequencies are located within the range of 375 GHz to 500 GHz. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first experimental demonstration of 2 × 2 MIMO wireless transmission of multi-channel THz-wave signal. Here, it is worth noting that our wireless 2 × 2 MIMO link, which offers point-to-point straight transmission and brings neither interference nor gain, is different from the traditional MIMO link defined in the field of wireless communications.
