    One of the foremost challenges in modulation scheme for molecular communication is positivity of the transmission signal (only a positive concentration of molecules can be released in the environment). This restriction makes handling of the InterSymbol Interference (ISI) a challenge for molecular communication. In this paper, a novel modulation is proposed which introduces use of negative signals to ameliorate the transmission link performance. A precoder scheme based on the diffusion channel model is proposed and shown to have a significant improvement compared to previous modulation schemes such as CSK and MCSK  

    Modeling and Localization in Molecular Communication

    Molecular communication (MC) is a relatively new branch in telecommunication science. This branch is designed to transmit information in small environments (about nanometers). Applications of molecular communication include identification of abnormalities, detection of cancers, etc. The smallness of the transmission environment has caused new challenges and areas in this field. One of the unique features of MC with no parallel in classical wireless communication is chemical reactions: different types of molecules can react with each other and form new types of molecules in the medium. This feature of MC poses a challenge in macroscale MC since equations describing chemical reaction with... 

    Impact of cognition and cooperation on MAC layer performance metrics, part i: Maximum stable throughput

    , Article IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications ; Volume 11, Issue 12 , 2012 , Pages 4252-4263 ; 15361276 (ISSN) Sharifi, A. A ; Ashtiani, F ; Keshavarz, H ; Nasiri Kenari, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper, we consider a broadband secondary transmitter-receiver pair which interferes with N narrowband primary users and study the effect of cognition and cooperation on the maximum stable throughput. In our study we focus on four transmission protocols as well as two channel types, i.e., flat fading and frequency selective fading. In the cooperative protocols, the broadband transmitter relays the packets of the primary users which have not correctly decoded at the primary receiver. The analysis includes random packet arrivals at the transmitters which may impact on the maximum stable throughput. Moreover, sensing errors at the secondary user are considered. In this paper, we derive... 

    Optimum receiver design for transmitted-reference signaling

    , Article IEEE Transactions on Communications ; Volume 58, Issue 5 , May , 2010 , Pages 1589-1598 ; 00906778 (ISSN) Farhang, M ; Salehi, J ; Sharif University of Technology
    Autocorrelation receiver (AcR) is usually used as the general receiver for transmitted reference (TR) communication systems on a quite intuitive basis. In this paper, we apply the principle of statistical invariance to obtain the optimum TR receiver on a decision-theoretic basis, and it is shown that the autocorrelation receiver is optimal only in a special case. Performance of the optimum receiver and the suboptimum AcR for some important modulation schemes is also evaluated. The results imply that allocating a part of the transmitted energy and bandwidth to reference pulses would not help improve the performance of the system and the optimal performance might be achieved via much simpler... 

    Performance analysis of carrier-less modulation schemes for wireless nanosensor networks

    Wireless Nano-scale Sensor Networks (WNSNs) are very simple and energy restricted networks that operate over terahertz band ranging from 0.1-10 THz, which faces significant molecular absorption noise and attenuation. Given these challenges, reliability, energy efficiency, and simplicity constitute the main criteria in designing communication protocols for WNSNs. Due to its simplicity and energy efficiency, carrier-less pulse based modulation is considered the best candidate for WNSNs. In this paper, we compare the performance of four different carrier-less modulations, PAM, OOK, PPM, and BPSK, in the context of WNSNs operating within the terahertz band. Our study shows that although BPSK is...

    This paper used a 4-level frequency shift keying (4-FSK) modulation scheme to enhance the density of wireless data transfer from implantable biomedical microsystems to the outside world. Modeling and simulation of the wireless channel for 4-FSK modulation in the case of a neural recording implant has been done. To realize the 4-FSK scheme, the modulator and demodulator circuits are proposed, designed and simulated in a 0.18-μm CMOS process, and in the 174-216 MHz frequency band at a data rate of 13.5 Mbps. Operated using a 1.8 V supply voltage, the modulator circuit consumes a power of 7.8 μW
