    Abstract

    Terahertz Band (100GHz-10THz) offers larger bandwidth and ultra-higher data rates and is visualized as a key technology to alleviate the capacity limitation and spectrum scarcity of the currents wireless networks. There are some competent development and design challenges in the realization of wireless terahertz network. Signal high path loss is one of the major constraints for enabling wireless communication networks in the terahertz band. Thus for the consummation of wireless propagation links in the THz band an equivalent signal path loss model is designed incorporating the major peculiarities of the wireless channel that accounts for terahertz wave propagation in LoS propagation. The equivalent path loss model for terahertz LoS propagation is developed and simulated in matlabR. The simulation results are compared with the lognormal path loss model results.
