Conductivity scaling in supercritical percolation of nanoparticles: not a power law
2015 (English)In: Nanoscale, ISSN 2040-3364, E-ISSN 2040-3372, Vol. 7, no 8, 3424-3428 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The power-law behavior widely observed in supercritical percolation systems of conductive nanoparticles may merely be a phenomenological approximation to the true scaling law not yet discovered. In this work, we derive a comprehensive yet simple scaling law and verify its extensive applicability to various experimental and numerical systems. In contrast to the power law which lacks theoretical backing, the new scaling law is explanatory and predictive, and thereby helpful to gain more new insights into percolation systems of conductive nanoparticles.
