MARIE Full-Day Workshop

MARIE is a German Collaborative Research Center and stands for "Mobile Material Characterization and Localization by Electromagnetic Sensing". As it is the origin of ICMMTS, a full-day workshop will present all 20 scientific projects, ranging from electronic, photonic and micromechanical THz technology to time-variant channel measurements and simulations, µm-precise localization, mobile imaging and material mapping. In addition, the collaborative framework for the management of research data as well as an integrated graduate school will also be presented.

  • THz Photonics (by Andreas Stöhr)
  • THz in vivo Communications (by Christian Wietfeld and Andreas Prokscha)
  • THz Communications (by Thomas Kürner)
  • THz Body Monitoring (by Elsa Kirchner and Niels Benson)
  • THz MIMO Radar (by Nils Pohl)
  • THz Identification (by Ali Abbas and Maher Khaliel)
  • THz Localization (by Mohammed El-Absi)
  • THz Perspectives on Insect and Plant Monitoring (by Daniel Erni, Mandana Jalali, Fawad Sheikh, Andreas Prokscha)
  • Reconfigurable Intelligent Surfaces Technologies and Applications: from GHz to THz (by Aydin Sezgin, Alejandro Jimenez-Saez)
  • Beamforming for THz Sensing and Communications (by Andreas Czylwik, Kevin Kolpatzeck)

Half-Day Workshop

THz for Communications and Sensing: Theory and Experiment; Joint Tutorial and Interactive Demonstration (by Mohamed-Slim Alouini, Tareq Al-Naffouri, Hadi Sarieddeen, Nour Kouzayha, Nidal Zarifeh, Yamen Zantah)

Scope

Mobile or even miniaturized THz devices enable novel applications in areas such as imaging, counting, localizing cells in our vessels and organs by miniaturized THz receiver arrays, recording of body and indirectly even muscle movements or detecting of plant and insect interactions by miniaturized THz radars, detecting and localizing bacteria and viruses in our environment or the composition of gases in space by miniaturized THz spectroscopy, dynamically mapping or testing materials in our environment with mobile THz reflectometry, transmitting data at extremely high rates or connecting a multitude of IoT devices by mobile THz communication.

Therefore, ICM²TS focuses on the numerous scientific challenges of various applications through successive miniaturization. Contributions from universities, research institutions, companies, visionaries and lateral thinkers are welcome to make the vision of smart dust through THz a reality.
