One of most important techniques for enabling the sixth-generation (6G) mobile wireless network lies in how to efficiently guarantee various stringent quality-of-service (QoS) performance-metrics to support the emerging massive Ultra-Reliable Low-Latency Communications (mURLLC) in 6G. Correspondingly, finite blocklength coding (FBC) has been developed as an effective technique to significantly improve various QoS indices for mURLLC through implementing short-packet communications. On the other hand, Terahertz (THz) band wireless nano-communications have been widely envisioned as a promising 6G technique to efficiently support utra-high data-rate (up to 1 Tbps). One of the major constraints over THz-band nano-networks is the severely limited energy that can be accessed by nano devices. Towards this end, various novel energy harvesting (EH) mechanisms have been proposed to remedy the energy scarcity problem. However, how to accurately characterize the relationships among THz wireless channels, energy consumption, and EH models for FBC based nano communications remains a challenging problem to support statistical delay and error-rate bounded QoS provisioning over FBC based 6G THz wireless nano-networks. To overcome these challenges, in this paper we propose optimal resource allocation policies to achieve the maximum \epsilon -effective capacity in the THz band over FBC-EH-based nano-networks. Particularly, we establish nano-scale system models and characterize wireless channel models in the THz band using FBC. In order to support statistical delay and error-rate bounded QoS provisioning, we formulate and solve the \epsilon -effective capacity maximization problem under several different EH constraints for our proposed schemes. Simulation results are included, which validate and evaluate our proposed schemes in the finite blocklength regime.
