This paper presents an analytical comparison of active and passive receiver models in diffusive molecular communication. In the active model, molecules are absorbed when they collide with the receiver surface. In the passive model, the receiver is a virtual boundary that does not affect molecule behavior. Two approaches are presented to derive transforms between the receiver signals. As an example, two models for an unbounded diffusion-only molecular communication system with a spherical… CONTINUE READING
