Comunicación Molecular: Retos y oportunidades

Mayteé Zambrano

Resumen


La comunicación molecular permite el envío de información a través de moléculas u otras partículas a escala de nanómetros a micrómetros. La misma posee limitaciones como: degradación de las partículas en el medio acuoso durante la propagación y retardo de la señal de información recibida debido al movimiento browniano de las partículas. En este artículo se describen los fundamentos más relevantes de un sistema de comunicación molecular incluyendo retos, limitaciones y aplicaciones en la que esta tecnología tendría un impacto relevante. Se presentan los aspectos significativos del canal de comunicaciones, tipos de modulación y herramientas de modelaje de sistemas de comunicación molecular.

Palabras clave


comunicación molecular, difusión, modulación basada en concentración de partículas, Nano-dispositivos, señales bioquímicas.
