doc.: IEEE /0885r2 Submission Nov 2007 Rick Roberts, IntelSlide 3 In contribution (February 2007), David Britz of AT&T Labs discussed the Terahertz spectrum band which covers 300 GHz to 10 THz. Questions immediately arise … 1. What applications might use this? 2. What technology would address this? 3. What is the coverage range and possible bit rates? 4. What is the regulatory status? 5. When is this going to happen in the market? 6. Will there be a standards effort and when? 7. What is the current research status? 8. Who is doing the research? 9. etc.
doc.: IEEE /0885r2 Submission Nov 2007 Rick Roberts, IntelSlide 4 These are all good questions … and to start documenting issues and answers, we (the names on this contribution) are asking for the formation of an Interest Group. IG Group Name: THz_IG IG Chair Volunteer: Rick Roberts (Intel) Meeting Schedule: as required based upon contributions 1 IG life: indefinite (until SG status or interest dissipates) Anticipated Migration to SG status: unknown IG Output: Documents addressing “issues and answers” Note 1: The THz_IG can either meet as a sub-committee during the WNG session – or – request a dedicated IG session on the WG schedule based upon IG workload.
