Cellular wireless industry has already started pursuing candidate technologies for beyond-5G cellular wireless systems. One of such technologies is effective use of even higher radio frequency spectrum than presently the 5G plans to use, in particular, above 100 GHz. It is necessary to study possibilities of link connectivity in outdoor cellular scenarios at such high frequencies through development of innovative radio frequency solutions and improved understanding of radio wave propagation. Within a new HORIZON 2020 European project we plan to exploit the opportunities emerging for advanced connectivity based on metasurfaces where objects in the environment can become tuneable reflectors for shaping the propagation environment in D-band.
The work on these topics will be supported by the European Union Horizon 2020 project. In our dynamic and open research environment, the post-doctoral fellow will have an opportunity to participate in other projects or bring his/her own research ideas.
