The world's-first compact transceiver for terahertz wireless communication using the 300-GHz band - with transmission rate of several-dozen gigabits per second - was developed and experimentally demonstrated high-speed data transmission. Tokyo, Global, May 26, 2016 - Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation, Fujitsu Limited, and the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology have cooperatively developed the world's-first compact terahertz wireless transceiver using the 300-GHz band and experimentally demonstrated that it can transmit data at transmission rate of 40 gigabits per second through multiplex transmission using orthogonal polarization. Since the transceiver can assure a broad frequency band, it is expected to be applied for high-speed wireless communication. Moreover, in the present development, under a supposed usage case in which large-capacity contents are downloaded from an information terminal (such as downloading video and music), the transmitter of the developed transceiver was installed in such an information terminal. Moreover, according to the results of a contents-downloading experiment using a compact (i.e., smartphone-sized) terminal fitted with a matching developed receiver, data transmission of two gigabytes per second (namely, downloading at a rate of one DVD's worth of data in about three seconds) was achieved. Through this experiment, it was shown that a compact transceiver using terahertz waves in the 300-GHz band - as well as the accompanying elemental circuit technology - could achieve large-capacity transmission. From now onwards, it is expected that technologies utilizing terahertz waves in the 300-GHz band will make major advances. The developed technology was presented in detail at IMS2016 (2016 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium) held in San Francisco from May 22nd, 2016. Moreover, as part of the sponsored research project called "Multi-tens gigabit wireless communication technology at subterahertz frequencies" under "The research and development project for the expansion of radio spectrum resources" of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, Japan running from 2011 to 2015, this accomplishment was successfully implemented by NTT, Fujitsu, and NICT.
