TERAPOD Final Workshop

Date: 26 May 2021

Location: Online

The TERAPOD final workshop was held on WED 26-May-2021!

Unfortunately due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, it was an online event. However, it proved to be a very interesting and useful day! There were presentations from some of the key TERAPOD researchers, live demonstrations of THz data links at several sites as well as a panel session to discuss the potential for THz communications.
