High-speed molecular communication: a solution for 6G?

May 8 @ 10:00 pm - 11:45 pm

6G wireless systems are expected to offer ubiquitous connectivity in presently under-served areas, potentially provided by satellite- and space-based internet-of-things applications. In the search for enabling technologies to achieve these expectations, molecular communication is an important alternative to conventional electromagnetic-based wireless communication. In this talk, we give a brief introduction to molecular communication, and discuss how it may be used to communicate in “wave-denied” environments, where connectivity is desired, but wireless cannot be used. We also show that molecular communication can achieve surprisingly high information rates, theoretically unlimited and practically in the gigabit-per-second range, making it a compelling technology for 6G. We finish with a discussion of the current state of the field and propose some experimental next steps.
