Abstract--Communication between a transmitter and a re-
ceiver using electromagnetic waves does not scale to nano-sizes.
To enable communication between nano-sized devices separated
by a short distance, molecular communication has recently
been proposed as a feasible scheme. The transmitter disperses
molecules into the medium, which propagate to, and are sensed
by, the receiver. In this paper, we wish to mathematically model
such a system and subsequently characterize the information
theoretic capacity of this channel. We present basic results on
characterizing the mutual information between the transmitter
and the receiver when information is encoded in the time of
release of the molecule. To do so, we model the propagation of
the molecule in this medium as Brownian motion, and derive the
probability density function of the arrival time of the molecule
at the receiver.
