Electrical percolation through a discontinuous Au nanoparticle film

Abstract:

Au thin films of thicknesses ranging from 5 to 20 nm were grown in UHV through physical vapour deposition on glass substrates decorated with Pt interdigitated electrodes with 5 lm separation. As expected, a gradual decrease in the electrical resistance of the films was observed as growth proceeded; however, when the average film thickness was greater than around 11 nm, the resistance decrease was not smooth but occurred in discrete steps. These resistance steps are attributed to the formation...
