Channel Modeling in a Phonon-based Quantum Network for Nano-communications

Abstract : Quantum phenomena represent a natural direction for developing nanotechnology, since it has to be considered as a new scale where new phenomena can occur and can be exploited for information purpose. Specific quantum particles are phonons, the quanta of mechanical vibrations (i.e., acoustic excitations), that can be analyzed as potential information carriers in a body network context. In this paper we derive the theoretical expression of the channel capacity of a phonon-based quantum network. By irradiating a sample of biological human tissue with an electromagnetic field, we obtain the generation of phonons from photon-phonon interaction, and can observe the information capacity in the frequency range [10ˆ3 10ˆ12 ] Hz.
