In this paper, cooperative simultaneous wireless information and power transfer terahertz (THz)-nonorthogonal multiple access (NOMA) is considered to overcome the challenging shortages that THz communications have due to THz characteristics. The proposed system presents a noticeable improvement in energy efficiency (EE) and spectral efficiency (SE), in addition to other important metrics. By utilizing NOMA technology and THz frequencies, it aims to improve connectivity, resource management, SE,

Accordingly, the outcome shows how the introduced energy harvesting technique manages to improve EE and SE compared with the conventional cooperative networks of the recent related work (e.g., cooperative MIMO-NOMA with THz) by 70%. The author also minimizes the transmission power and maximizes the EE by using a decode-and-forward relay rather than an intelligent reflecting surface, which aims to reduce the dissipation in the transceiver hardware, computational complexity, and improves reliability and transmission rate.
