The Nanocommunications Center
Nanonetworks, i.e. networks of nanoscale machines or nanomachines, under the Internet of Things (IoT) concept, will enable more advanced applications of nanotechnology in the biomedical, environmental, energy, military and other fields. The mission of the center is to conduct research on nanoscale machines networking and communications as a next step in modern communication technologies. In particular, this field is an unexplored area riddled with numerous research challenges. More specifically, many fundamental communication network requirements and functionalities will be redefined and redesigned (including algorithms for nanoscale communication; information modulation and coding; synchronization; relay, broadcast, and medium access control mechanisms; network architectures and topologies, connectivity; addressing and routing; reliable information transport).
