Abstract:

This paper describes a design of a molecular propagation system in molecular communication. Molecular communication is a new communication paradigm where biological and artificially-created nanomachines communicate over a short distance using molecules. A molecular propagation system in molecular communication directionally transports molecules from a sender to a receiver. In the design described in this paper, protein filaments glide over immobilized motor proteins along preconfigured microlithographic tracks, and the gliding protein filaments carry and transport molecules from a sender to a receiver. In the design, DNA hybridization is used to load and unload the molecules onto and from the carriers at a sender and a receiver. In the design, loading/transporting/unloading processes are autonomous and require no external control.
