Stochastic Analysis of Indoor THz Uplink with Co-Channel Interference and Phase Noise
The paper studies the joint impact of phase noise (PN) and co-channel interference (CCI) in indoor terahertz (THz) uplink. We formulate the theoretical framework that quantifies the impact of PN on the transceiver antenna directivity by extracting exact closed-form and low-complexity tight approximations for the expected gains. Additionally, by employing stochastic geometry, we model the propagation environment of indoor THz wireless systems and provide the analytical characterization of the CCI in the presence of PN, in terms of its expected value. The analysis is verified through computer simulations that reveal the accuracy of the presented theory with moderate numbers of users. The paper provides readily available tools for analyzing and designing indoor THz networks.
