Abstract

Molecular communication uses molecules (i.e., chemical signals) as an information carrier and allows biologically- and artificially-created nano- or cell-scale entities to communicate over a short distance. It is a new communication paradigm and is different from the traditional communication paradigm that uses electromagnetic waves (i.e., electronic and optical signals) as an information carrier. Key research challenges in molecular communication include design of a sender, design of a molecular propagation system, design of a receiver, design of a molecular communication interface, and mathematical modeling of molecular communication components and systems. This paper focuses on system design and experimental results of molecular communication and briefly refers to recent activities in molecular communication.
