We demonstrate and analyze data modulation of terahertz (THz) signals in the range. THz pulse trains are phase and amplitude encoded with pseudorandom binary data, transmitted over a short distance, and detected. Different modulation formats are generated. Bit error measurements characterize the communication channel. We estimate from experimental results the maximum data rates for an optimized system.
