|Abstract:||Seamless integration of terahertz wireless communications with existing optical access networks can potentially offer tens of gigahertz of channel bandwidth. However, the timing-jitter exhibited by the electronics-based transceivers is a key transmission impairments that tends to ceil the performance of these hybrid access networks, especially at high transmission baud rates. In this work, we propose a sinc-Lorentzian Nyquist pulse shape that outperforms the conventional raised-cosine and the better-than raised-cosine pulse shapes under the influence of timing-jitter up to 35% of the symbol duration. Experimental demonstrations are carried out using a 311 GHz photonic-terahertz system operating at a standard bit rate of 1.44 Gbit/s to investigate the robustness of the three pulse shapes against timing-jitter. It is confirmed that the proposed pulse shape is highly-tolerant to timing-jitter as well as the nonlinearity exhibited by terahertz systems, and hence, can improve the bit error rate performance by an order of magnitude when the average timing-jitter is as large as 0.24 ns. The proposed pulse shape is a critical step for designing ultra-high-speed terahertz communications links with improved robustness to timing-jitter.|
