Scientific work of the leading scientist, his/her main scientific achievements:
During his career, prof. Akildiz has achieved many significant scientific results. His main results for the last 5 years are described below. Prof. Akyildiz has investigated novel graphene-based transceivers for Terahertz Band communication. He designed graphene-based ultrabroadband antennas and antenna arrays and developed experimental prototypes of graphene-based nano-antennas and of high-speed nanotransceivers for Terahertz communications. He developed new channel propagation models for the entire Terahertz Band. In addition, he explored novel solutions for the physical layer, which included novel bandwidth-adaptive modulations as well as pioneering massive MIMO techniques for Terahertz Band communications. He also designed new information theoretic fundamentals of communication among nano-devices. Finally, he investigated link layer functionalities necessary for Terahertz Band communication networks.
Molecular nanonetworks represent one of the main areas of scientific interest of prof. Akyildiz. Nanonetworks is a set of interconnection nanomachines with each nonomachine being the most basic functional unit with the size up to few hundred nanometers. Nanomachine can perform only simple tasks, such as computing, data storing, sensing events and replying to them. Nanonetworks expand the capabilities of single nanomachines by providing them a way to cooperate for performing certain actions. Prof. Akyildiz has worked on applications of nanonetworks in medicine, for example, for monitoring and regulation of intra-body biological processes. The traditional electromagnetic waves-based communication cannot be used for nanonetworks due to the scale of occuring processes (up to few hundred nanometers) .
That is why prof. Akyildiz has investigated molecular communication, i.e., the use of molecules to encode and transmit information among nanomachines. His research has given a rise to a radically new communication paradigm. During his research prof. Akyildiz has studied already existing molecular communication mechanisms, developed molecular communication theory, architecture and networking protocols for nanomachines.
