Nano- and bio-communications

Research focus and goals

In this research area, we study networks of tiny embedded computing devices, based on nanomaterials such as graphene or metamaterials, as well as biomaterials, having scales ranging from one to a few hundred nanometers, called nanothings. We study and develop methods to enable such nanothings to cooperatively perform sensing, actuation, processing, and networking. One key application area is the so-called Augmented Human, where networked nanomachines are used to complement basic human senses or facilitate highly personalized healt-care and wellbeing.
