The main objective of this project is to develop the first micro/nanoscale experimental test and validation platform for microfluidic molecular communication (MC) systems accompanied by a theoretical design, modeling and optimization framework, and to devise novel experimentally-validated low-complexity MC methods, such as modulation, coding, synchronization, and detection techniques.

Engineering Ligand-Receptor Interactions for Molecular Communications

Ligand-receptor (LR) interactions are essential for artificial molecular communication (MC) systems to have a selective and reliable channel/receiver interface in the form of a biorecognition layer consisting of ligand receptors. Recent studies have revealed the dramatic impact of LR interactions on the overall MC performance in terms of channel bandwidth, molecular interference, receiver sensitivity and dynamic range, posing a multi-objective optimisation problem. The aim of REINFORMATION is to understand, optimise and engineer the LR interactions for high data-rate and reliable MC systems.
