Paper Accepted: Molecular Information Delivery in Porous Media

The paper "Molecular Information Delivery in Porous Media" (link to arXiv version; here is the DOI) was accepted for publication in IEEE Transactions on Molecular, Biological, and Multi-Scale Communications. We perform the first study of using a porous material as a diffusive communication channel. With the help of statistical breakthrough curves, we compare the characteristics of communication in a porous channel with that of the more familiar free space diffusion channel. One key difference is that increasing the Peclet number in a porous channel can increase the size of the tail of the channel impulse response, whereas this would decrease the size of the channel impulse response tail in the free space case. This paper was co-authored with Yuting Fang (ANU, Australia), Weisi Guo (Warwick), Matteo Icardi (Nottingham), and Nan Yang (ANU, Australia).

Paper Accepted: "Diffusive Molecular Communication in a Biological Spherical Environment with Partially Absorbing Boundary"

The paper "Diffusive Molecular Communication in a Biological Spherical Environment with Partially Absorbing Boundary" (link to arXiv version; here is the DOI) was accepted for publication in IEEE Transactions on Communications. We derive the diffusive channel response for a transmitter and receiver that are arbitrarily placed within a partially absorbing spherical shell. This paper was co-authored with Hamidreza Arjmandi and Mohammad Zoofaghari (both at Yazd University, Iran).

Paper Accepted - A Novel A Priori Simulation Algorithm for Absorbing Receivers in Diffusion-Based Molecular Communication Systems

The paper "A Novel A Priori Simulation Algorithm for Absorbing Receivers in Diffusion-Based Molecular Communication Systems" (link to arXiv version; here is the DOI) was accepted for publication in IEEE Transactions on NanoBioscience. We propose a Monte Carlo type approach to efficiently simulate surface absorption in microscopic particle-based simulations. The algorithm is shown to be very accurate when simulating with large time steps. This paper was co-authored with Yiran Wang and Nan Yang (both at ANU, Australia). An implementation of this algorithm is included in the AcCoRD simulator (Actor-based Communication via Reaction-Diffusion).

Paper Accepted - "Channel Modeling for Diffusive Molecular Communication - A Tutorial Review"

The paper "Channel Modeling for Diffusive Molecular Communication - A Tutorial Review" (link to arXiv version; here is the DOI) was accepted for publication in Proceedings of the IEEE. We do an extensive review of the end-to-end communication channel models that are available for diffusive molecular communication systems, as well discuss simulation methods and experimental testbeds. It should be a helpful resource for anyone interested in working in this area, whether you are new to the field or an experienced member. This paper was co-authored with colleagues at FAU (Germany): Vahid Jamali, Arman Ahmadzadeh, Wayan Wicke, and Robert Schober.

Paper Accepted - Symbol-by-Symbol Maximum Likelihood Detection for Cooperative Molecular Communication

The paper "Symbol-by-Symbol Maximum Likelihood Detection for Cooperative Molecular Communication" (link to arXiv version; here is the DOI) was accepted for publication in IEEE Transactions on Communications. We propose different methods of maximum-likelihood-based detection when a fusion centre combines observations of diffusing molecules by a collection of receivers. This paper was co-authored with Yuting Fang (ANU, Australia), Nan Yang (ANU, Australia), Andrew W. Eckford (York, Canada), and Rodney A. Kennedy (ANU, Australia).
