Electrophoretic molecular communication with time-varying electric fields

This article investigates a novel electrophoretic molecular communication mechanism that utilizes a time-varying electric field, which induces time-varying molecule velocities and in turn improves communication performance. For a sinusoidal field, we …

Numerical and experimental analysis of the sedimentation of spherical colloidal suspensions under centrifugal force

Understanding the sedimentation behaviour of colloidal suspensions is crucial in determining their stability. Since sedimentation rates are often very slow, centrifugation is used to expedite sedimentation experiments. The effect of centrifugal …
