The proliferation of wireless broadband services have significantly raised the demand for high data rates. Due to the limited bandwidth of radio frequency (RF) bands that are currently in use for communication purposes, the choice of the 'Terahertz (THz) frequency region' (0.3-10 THz) is getting favored thanks to its merits of bringing together wireless and optical communications with photonics technologies. We report on an experimental demonstration of a hybrid THz photonic-wireless transmission based on a THz orthogonal polarization dual-antenna scheme. Probabilistic shaped 64-ary quadrature amplitude modulation based orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (64QAM-OFDM) modulation format is used to realize high transmission rate. A potential total system throughput of 612.65 Gbit/s (around 2×300 Gbit/s line rate) with an average net spectral efficiency of 4.445 bit/s/Hz per antenna is successfully achieved.
