Transparent Optical-THz-Optical Link Transmission over 5/115 m at 240/190 Gbit/s Enabled by Plasmonics

Horst, Yannik, et al. “Transparent optical-THz-optical Link transmission over 5/115 m at 240/190 Gbit/s enabled by plasmonics.” 2021 Optical Fiber Communications Conference and Exhibition (OFC). IEEE, 2021.


The first transparent Optical-THz-Optical link providing record-high line-rates up to 240 and 190 Gbit/s over distances from 5 to 115m is demonstrated. The link is based on direct data-conversion from optical to sub-THz and vice-versa.
