We mimic nanorod-based transparent electrodes as random resistor networks (RRN) produced by the homogeneous, isotropic, and random deposition of conductive zero-width sticks onto an insulating substrate. We suppose that the number density (the number of objects per unit area of the surface) of these sticks exceeds the percolation threshold, i.e., the system under consideration is a conductor. We computed the electrical conductivity of random resistor networks vs the number density of conductive…

Computational Investigation of the Morphology, Efficiency, and Properties of Silver Nano Wires Networks in Transparent Conductive Film
A computational method is proposed for identifying the representative volume element (RVE) of nano wire networks and this defines the minimum pixel size in devices using such transparent electrodes, which is used to compute the macroscopic properties of films and to quantify the electrically conducting efficiency of networks.
Effective medium theory for the conductivity of disordered metallic nanowire networks.
The effective medium approach provides a simple way to distinguish the sheet resistance contribution of the junctions from that of the nanowires themselves and the contrast between these two contributions determines the potential to optimize the network performance for a particular application.
Electrical conductance of two-dimensional composites with embedded rodlike fillers: An analytical consideration and comparison of two computational approaches
Using Monte Carlo simulation, we studied the electrical conductance of two-dimensional films. The films consisted of a poorly conductive host matrix and highly conductive rodlike fillers (rods). The

We have studied the electrical conductivity of two-dimensional nanowire networks. An analytical evaluation of the contribution of tunneling to their electrical conductivity suggests that it is
Predictive Model for the Electrical Transport within Nanowire Networks.
An analytical model for the electrical conduction within nanowire networks based on an analysis of the parallel resistor network is derived, which captures the transport characteristics and fits a wide range of experimental data, allowing for the determination of physical parameters and performance-limiting factors.
Resistance of Single Ag Nanowire Junctions and Their Role in the Conductivity of Nanowire Networks.
This paper presents for the first time a distribution of junction resistance values and proves that the junction contribution to the overall resistance can be reduced beyond that of the wires through standard processing techniques, and demonstrates the important role played by the network skeleton and the specific connectivity of the network in determining network performance.
