Integrate intelligent surfaces into the wireless networks of the future.

The next generation of wireless technology (6G) promises to transform wireless communication and human interconnectivity like never before. Intelligent surface, which adopts significant numbers of small reflective surfaces to reconfigure wireless connections and improve network performance, has recently been recognized as a critical component for enabling future 6G. The next phase of wireless technology demands engineers and researchers are familiar with this technology and are able to cope with the challenges.

Intelligent Surfaces Empowered 6G Wireless Network provides a thorough overview of intelligent surface technologies and their applications in wireless networks and 6G. It includes an introduction to the fundamentals of intelligent surfaces, before moving to more advanced content for engineers who understand them and look to apply them in the 6G realm. Its detailed discussion of the challenges and opportunities posed by intelligent surfaces empowered wireless networks makes it the first work of its kind.

Intelligent Surfaces Empowered 6G Wireless Network readers will also find:
* An editorial team including the original pioneers of intelligent surface technology.
* Detailed coverage of subjects including MIMO, terahertz, NOMA, energy harvesting, physical layer security, computing, sensing, machine learning, and more.
* Discussion of hardware design, signal processing techniques, and other critical aspects of IRS engineering.

Intelligent Surfaces Empowered 6G Wireless Network is a must for students, researchers, and working engineers looking to understand this vital aspect of the coming 6G revolution.
