Abstract

Nano-devices have great potential to play a vital role in future medical diagnostics and treatment technologies because of its non-invasive nature and ability to reach delicate body sites easily as compared with conventional devices. In this paper, a novel concept of cooperative communication for in vivo nano-network is presented to enhance the communication among these devices. The effect on the system outage probability performance is conducted for various parameters, including relay placement, number of relays, transmit power, bandwidth, and carrier frequency. Results show approximately a tenfold increase in the system outage performance whenever an additional relay is included in the cooperative network, and hence show a great potential of using cooperative communication to enhance the performance of nano-network at terahertz frequencies.
