The Development of a Biocompatible Testbed for Molecular Communication with Magnetic Nanoparticles
Although the concept of engineered molecular communication has been around for quite some time, practical approaches with truly biocompatible setups are still scarce. However, molecular communication has a large potential in future medical applications and may be a solution to size constraints of antenna based transmission systems. In this work we therefore present a testbed using biocompatible magnetic nanoparticles. Based on previous work, all testbed components have been improved regarding performance and size, making a large step forwards regarding miniaturisation and a data transmission approach. In addition, a setup for localised twodimensional sensing of magnetic nanoparticles is presented. All improvements are evaluated individually and combined to achieve a net data rate of more than 6 bit/s, significantly higher than any other comparable biocompatible setup.
