Chapter 7

Nanomorphic cell communication unit

Abstract

An autonomous nanomorphic cell must communicate in some applications by sending and receiving data from within a living organism. Two electromagnetic transmission mechanisms are considered in Chapter 7: one based on radio-frequency (RF) communication and one based on optical communication. It is established that omnidirectional communication is a very energy intensive idea and would quickly exhaust the energy one could possibly store in the nanomorphic cell. Therefore, one must either surround the omnidirectional transmitter with many external receivers and suffer the dramatic energy losses or operate with a more conventional and directed transmission/reception system. Typically the ...
