AbstractPercolation and jamming phenomena were investigated for anisotropic sequential deposition of dimers (particles occupying two adjacent adsorption sites) on a square lattice. The influence of dimer alignment on the electrical conductivity was examined. The percolation threshold for deposition of dimers was lower than for deposition of monomers. Nevertheless, the problem belongs to the universality class of random percolation. The lowest percolation threshold (pc = 0.562) was observed for… 

Percolation of heteronuclear dimers irreversibly deposited on square lattices.

The model offers a simplified representation of the problem of percolation of defective (nonideal) particles, where the presence of defects in the system is simulated by introducing a mixture of conductive and nonconductive segments.

Percolation of aligned rigid rods on two-dimensional square lattices.

The results show that the percolation threshold exhibits a decreasing function when it is plotted as a function of the kmer size, and in the case of aligned kmers, the intersection points of the curves of R(L,k)(p) for different system sizes exhibit nonuniversal critical behavior, varying continuously with changes in the kmers size.

Transport properties in multilayer adsorption of dimers.

In this paper, we study the transport properties (percolation and conductivity) of a two-dimensional structure created by depositing dimers on a one-dimensional substrate where multilayer deposition

Percolation of polyatomic species on a simple cubic lattice

In the present paper, the site-percolation problem corresponding to linear k-mers (containing k identical units, each one occupying a lattice site) on a simple cubic lattice has been studied. The

Site trimer percolation on square lattices.

Percolation of site trimers (k-mers with k=3) is investigated in a detailed way making use of an analytical model based on renormalization techniques in this problem to establish the tendency of p(c) to decrease as k increases.

Percolation in Systems Containing Ordered Elongated Objects

It was shown that for a strongly ordered system containing needles the ratio of percolation and jamming thresholds cp=cj is almost independent on the needle length d.

Percolation and jamming of linear k-mers on a square lattice with defects: Effect of anisotropy.

Using the Monte Carlo simulation, the percolation and jamming of oriented linear k-mers on a square lattice that contains defects is studied and an interesting finding is that the value of p(s) tends towards zero in the limits of the very long k-mer, k→∞, and very small critical concentrations d(c)→0.0.

Jamming and percolation properties of random sequential adsorption with relaxation

The role of post-relaxation on the jamming state and percolation properties of RSA of dimers on a two-dimensional lattice is investigated and it is found that the density of adsorbed dimers at which percolations occurs is reduced with relaxation, but the value depends on the strength of anisotropy.

The results of a study of random sequential adsorption of linear segments (needles) on sites of a square lattice are presented and it is shown that the percolation threshold is a nonmonotonic function of the length of the adsorbed needle, while the jamming threshold decreases to a constant with a power law.

Percolation of polyatomic species on a square lattice

Abstract.In this paper, the percolation of (a) linear segments of size k and(b) k-mers of different structures and forms deposited on a square lattice have been studied. In the latter case, site and

A Monte Carlo analysis is made of site percolation on a diamond lattice occupied by a mixture of monatomic and diatomic constituents that is generated by an algorithm simulating the results of random

Monte Carlo analysis of percolation of line segments on a square lattice.

It is strongly suggested that bi-dimensional systems generated by a random sequential adsorption of line-segments on a square lattice do not belong to the universality class of random site percolation.
