When conceiving molecular communication (MC) systems, it is of utmost importance to determine the threshold value for decoding bits and producing the smaller bit error rate (BER). At this optimum, the BER has the smallest value, and errors in the reception can be minimized, thereby improving the minimal throughput of molecular means. Despite its im...
