Abstract: This paper demonstrates an ultra-low cost THz system for implementing a short-range wireless communications link in the far/mid-infrared parts of the electromagnetic spectrum. The basic prototype front-end hardware is deliberately kept very simple; based around miniature incandescent light bulbs, THz filters and pyroelectric infrared sensors. While only a low data rate has been experimentally demonstrated so far, this does not represent a fundamental limitation, as a number of technological enhancements are possible. It is believed that this “THz torch” technology has its niche in ubiquitous security applications that do not require high data rates or large distance operation (e.g. secure RFID, smart key fobs and remote controls).
