One of the most prominent forms of information transmission between nano- or micro-scale devices is molecular communication, where molecules are used to transfer information inside a fluidic channel. The effects of channel shape on achievable information transmission rates is considered in this work. Specifically, regular convex polygons are studied. A mathematical framework for finding the optimal channel among this class of geometric shapes is derived. Using this framework it is shown that… CONTINUE READING
