Abstract

In the past years, Molecular Communications were studied mainly from a communication engineering and theoretical point of view. To design nano- to micro-sized signaling networks, reliable communication-theoretical models and experimental testbeds are still missing. Inspired by microbial cells we established an organic, molecular signal converter as a modulator for MC signals. The transmitter is a bacterial cell expressing the light-driven proton pump gloeorhodopsin. In recent test runs, we were able to send short messages encoded in a light signal and converted to pH variation with a rate of 2 bits/min with the help of living bacteria.
