Abstract

Molecular communication (MC) denotes information transmission by use of molecules and nanosized particles. For the realization of testbeds, superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) in duct flow have recently been proposed. Here, an experimental setup is provided to direct these particles at a branching of a tube into a specific direction by use of magnetic fields.
