Abstract

Molecular communication is a new communication technique where transmitter and receiver communicate by transmitting molecules and correspondingly modulating their specific characteristics. Molecular communication is being considered as a new physical layer (PHY) option for a vast number of communicating nanomachines that form “nanonetworks.” Thus it has become a promising option for a large number of new applications, offering several benefits over conventional electromagnetic communications based on radio waves or optics at nanoscale dimension. Concentration-encoding is a simple and good technique to encode information with molecules. Incorrect detection of concentration-encoded signals makes molecular communication a real challenge. This paper has addressed sampling-based and energy-based detection approaches in detail for binary concentration-encoded molecular communication signals based on diffusion in fluidic media.
