Recent progress in wireless communication technology has started to see proposals for spectrum operation in the Terahertz band (0.1 THz to 10 THz), which will lead to data rates close to Terabit per second (Tbps). However,there are a number of challenges with the signals operating in the THz band, and this includes the requirements of Line-of-sight, signal attenuation due to molecular absorption, as well as signal scattering upon reflection from rough surfaces. This paper addresses a software-defined reflector solution for mirror-assisted terahertz communications. The paper also discusses future outlook that further improve reflectos for terahertz communications.
