  journal={Proceedings of the 3rd ACM International Conference on Nanoscale Computing and Communication},
A practical, biologically motivated case of protein complexes (immunoglobulin G and FcRII receptors) moving on the surface of mastcells, that are common parts of an immunological system, is investigated. Proteins are considered as nanomachines creating a nanonetwork. Accurate molecular models of the proteins and the fluorophores which act as their nanoantennas are used to simulate the communication between the nanomachines when they are close to each other. The theory of diffusion-based…

A Communication Theoretical Analysis of FRET-Based Mobile Ad Hoc Molecular Nanonetworks

Nanonetworks refer to a group of nanosized machines with very basic operational capabilities communicating to each other in order to accomplish more complex tasks such as in-body drug delivery, or

Nanocommunication via FRET With DyLight Dyes Using Multiple Donors and Acceptors

DyLight fluorescent dyes, which are very well suited to long range nanocommunication due to their large Förster distances and high degrees of labeling, are proposed and the reported results of the recent laboratory experiments confirm efficient communication on distances over 10 nm.

Measurements on MIMO-FRET Nano-Networks Based on Alexa Fluor Dyes

This paper proposes to use Alexa Fluor dyes as nano transmitters and receivers, as they enable to create multiple-input multioutput (MIMO) FRET communication channels and thus enhance FRET efficiency.

Fluorescent Molecules as Transceiver Nanoantennas: The First Practical and High-Rate Information Transfer over a Nanoscale Communication Channel based on FRET

The performance of the FRET-based Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output nanocommunication channel between closely located mobile nanoantennas in the sample solution is evaluated and results are very promising for the development of high-rate and reliable molecular communication networks at nanoscale.

A Physical Channel Model and Analysis for Nanoscale Molecular Communications With Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET)
