A Fast Algorithm for Analysis of Molecular Communication in Artificial Synapse

Author(s): Bilgesu A. Bilgin, Ozgur B. Akan
A Fast Algorithm for Analysis of Molecular Communication in Artificial Synapse 215 259 Transactions on NanoBioscience (TNB)

In this paper, we analyze molecular communications (MCs) in a proposed artificial synapse (AS), whose main difference from biological synapses (BSs) is that it is closed, i.e., transmitter molecules cannot…

Ion Channel Based Bio-Synthetic Modulator for Diffusive Molecular Communication

Author(s): Hamidreza Arjmandi, Arman Ahmadzadeh, Robert Schober, Masoumeh Nasiri Kenari
Ion Channel Based Bio-Synthetic Modulator for Diffusive Molecular Communication 556 259 Transactions on NanoBioscience (TNB)

In diffusion-based molecular communication (DMC), a transmitter nanomachine is responsible for signal modulation. Thereby, the transmitter has to be able to control the release of the signaling molecules employed for…
