Zhang graduation
May 03, 2019

Menglei Zhang became ComSenTer's very first doctoral graduate after defending his PhD thesis at New York University on April 18 in front of an audience of his thesis committees and invited students.

In his thesis "Will TCP work in Low Latency Networks", Zhang evaluated the performance of traditional TCP and new congestion control algorithms in the low latency networks.

Mark Rodwell speaking at NYU
November 01, 2018

ComSenTer Director Mark Rodwell from UC Santa Barbara discussed “Wireless Above 100GHz” in NYU Wireless & ECE Special Seminar Series on “Circuits: Terahertz(THz) & Beyond” on October 9, 2018.

In his talk Rodwell focused on services, systems, Integrated Circuits (ICs) and Devices investigated in ComSenTer. “We are looking for carrier frequencies above a 100 GHz,” Rodwell said in his introduction. “This brings us two opportunities. One is simply a much more available spectrum. The other is, because the wave links are short, we can do massive spatial multiplexing.”

A research group is exploring 5G’s ultimate replacement -- terahertz-based 6G wireless -- which could be in commercial use within 10 years.

Coinciding with a signing-off of global standardizations for the as-yet-unlaunched 5G radio technology by 3GPP this month we get news of initial development plans for faster 6G wireless. The Center for Converged TeraHertz Communications and Sensing (ComSenTer) says it’s investigating new radio technologies that will make up 6G.

Imagine a roomful of 1,000 students all simultaneously experiencing an augmented reality lecture and demonstration. Or, how about riding in an autonomous vehicle that can detect, in real time and despite inclement weather, an accident or obstacle miles ahead? For those scenarios to be possible, we need a new, enhanced generation of wireless communication.
