The conductivity of ring-shaped deposits formed at the periphery of evaporating droplets of silver nanoparticle colloidal solutions has been studied. The dependence of the resistance of the ring-shaped deposits on nanoparticle size has been shown to exhibit a percolation transition. The specific conductivity of the deposits has been estimated in relation to their geometric shapes. The conductivity has been established to nonmonotonically depend on nanoparticle sizes. It has been noted that, in… CONTINUE READING
