Abstract

Molecular communication is a promising technique for microchannel systems. In this paper, various microchannel molecular communication schemes are simulated and analyzed using information theory, including molecular motors and Brownian motion with drift. Results suggest Brownian motion with drift can deliver excellent performance, depending on the drift velocity.
