IEEE Globecom 2023 recognizes IMDEA Networks' research with Best Paper Award

The award-winning paper is “Characterizing Sub-THz MIMO Channels in Practice: A Novel Channel Sounder with Absolute Time Reference”

06 November 2023

The publication “Characterizing Sub-THz MIMO Channels in Practice: A Novel Channel Sounder with Absolute Time Reference”, in which our research director Joerg Widmer participates, has been recognized with the Best Paper Award at the IEEE Global Communications Conference (IEEE Globecom 2023) to be held on 4-8 December in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

This distinguished honor recognizes the work of Duschia Bodet, Phuc Dinh, Milica Stojanovic, Joerg Widmer, Dimitrios Koutsonikolas, Josep Miquel Jornet for their pioneering contributions in the field of communication technology.

Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) systems have been presented for Terahertz (THz) communications to combat high path loss and enable Terabit-per-second (Tbps) links. The lack of experimental MIMO channel measurements, however, has restricted the majority of THz MIMO work to the theoretical realm.

This paper presents a novel, first-of-its-kind correlation-based MIMO channel sounder with a timing reference for sub-THz communications, which enables broadband, long-range, and time-varying channel characterization of MIMO systems. Preliminary results from a conference room setting show that 28.5\% of the tested scenarios can support spatial multiplexing, and even with beamforming, the capacity outperforms the SISO cases substantially.

The work of these researchers paves the way for innovative solutions in high-speed data communication.

About IEEE Globecom

IEEE Global Communications Conference is one of the IEEE Communications Society’s two flagship conferences dedicated to driving innovation in nearly every aspect of communications. Each year, more than 3000 scientific researchers and their management submit proposals for program sessions to be held at the annual conference. After extensive peer review, the best of the proposals are selected for the conference program, which includes technical papers, tutorials, workshops and industry sessions designed specifically to advance technologies, systems and infrastructure that are continuing to reshape the world and provide all users with access to an unprecedented spectrum of high-speed, seamless and cost-effective global telecommunications services.

This year’s theme is “Intelligent Communications for Shared Prosperity”. It will feature a comprehensive high-quality technical program including 13 symposia and a variety of tutorials and workshops.
