    abstract = {Molecular communication (MC) denotes information transmission by use of molecules and nanosized particles. For the realization of testbeds, superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) in duct
    flow have recently been proposed. Here, an experimental setup is provided to direct these particles at a branching of a tube into a specific direction by use of magnetic fields. 

    For that purpose, gold-coated SPIONs suspended in water at constant flow rate are considered at a Y-shaped connector of tubes. The particles are attracted by use of a custom-made electromagnet, while change of particle concentration in either of the branches is measured by a commercial susceptometer. The approach is evaluated for different flow rates and with the electromagnet both at a fixed position and moving along the tube. Exemplary measurements show that an information transmission is feasible in both approaches and with all tested flow rates. 

    The feasibility study hence shows that particle steering by use of magnetic fields is a viable approach, which is even robust against flow rate variations. It can thus be used in MC to address different transmission channels as well as to realize differential signal transmission. Furthermore, it might help to improve magnetic drug targeting in future applications.

    abstract = {Differences in contact impedance of the ECG measurement electrodes lead to asymmetries of the signal paths and thus result in reduced common-mode rejection and artifacts. Here, the imbalance of contact impedance is investigated for different types of electrodes with capacitive coupling in terms of static imbalance as well as dynamic variation during body movement. Flexible and incompressible materials like conductive foam and fabric showed the best overall performance. The negative effect of rigidity can partly be compensated by adding conducting foam, while soft materials can profit from an increase of electrode area.

    @inproceedings{bartunik2020,
    abstract = {Superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) have recently been introduced as information carriers in a testbed for molecular communication (MC) in duct flow. Here, a new receiver for this testbed is presented, based on the concept of a Wheatstone bridge. The capability for a reliable transmission using the testbed and detection of the proposed receiver was evaluated by sending a text message and a 80 bit random sequence at a bit rate of 1/s, which resulted in a bit error rate of 0 %. Furthermore, the sensitivity of the device was assessed by a dilution series, which gave a limit of detectability of peaks between 0:1 to 0:5 mg/mL. Compared to the commercial susceptometer that was previously used as receiver, the new detector provides an increased sampling rate of 100 samples/s and flexibility in the dimensions of the propagation channel. Furthermore, it allows to implement both single-ended and differential signaling in SPION-bases MC testbeds
