Abstract
In this article, an analysis of wave-object interactions is presented for an entrance hall and on a street of a residential area at 142 GHz. Single-directional channel sounding and the resulting spatiotemporal propagation path estimates are fused with the detailed geometry of the environment through a ray-launcher. The improved ray-launcher accounts for higher order reflections and realizes high correspondence of the measured paths on the geometry, allowing us to analyze wave-object interaction. In channels without line-of-sight, first- and second-order reflections contribute about 60% of the total power. Large interior and exterior walls of buildings are found most influential to the multipath channel. About half of the total received power in some links can be attributed to the reflections on small objects such as pillars and staircases in indoor and lampposts in outdoor cases. While large objects produce most of the clusters to the channel, there are links where small objects generate up to four clusters. The obtained knowledge of wave-object interaction at 142 GHz serves as guidelines to set up site-specific and geometry-based channel modeling at the frequency.
