Enhanced tunneling conductivity induced by gelation of attractive colloids.

Abstract

We show that the formation of a gel by conducting colloidal particles leads to a dramatic enhancement in bulk conductivity, due to interparticle electron tunneling, combining predictions from molecular-dynamics simulations with structural measurements in an experimental colloid system. Our results show how colloidal gelation can be used as a general route… (More)
