Molecular Communications

This research area is devoted to the design and analysis of communication systems that use chemical signals.

Diffusion-Based Molecular Communications

Molecular communication (MC) is a promising approach to enable communication at nanoscale between nanomachines (e.g., nanorobots, genetically engineered cells). Hence, enabling applications like targeted drug delivery or smart disease detection. In MC a sender nanomachine releases molecules that propagate through an aqueous or gaseous environment to a receiver nanomachine. The aim of this project is the physical layer characterization of MC, for example we investigate suitable modulation techniques for MC.


Networked Labs-on-a-Chip

In Labs-on-a Chip (LoC) tiny volumes of fluids (droplets) are manipulated to perform chemical or biological analysis, such as drug discovery or DNA sequencing. To perform a specific analysis a number of operations (e.g., mixing or splitting of droplets) is executed in a predefined order, which limits the flexibility and reusability of such systems. The goal of this project is to develop programmable LoC, which performs various analyzes on a single LoC by selecting the operations required for a specific tasks in a programmable way. Therefore, the operations are interconnected in a microfluidic network, a so-called Networked Labs-on-a-Chip (NLoC). The droplets are driven by exploiting only hydrodynamic forces, i.e. droplets flow along the path with minimum fluidic resistance. We investigate different network functionalities, such as addressing or switching to enable the envisioned NLoC.
