The conductivity dependence on the stick density and system geometry needs to be taken into account in any device design14 .
From percolating to dense random stick networks: Conductivity model investigation
Based on the Monte Carlo simulation results, a model is proposed describing the conductivity dependence on the stick density and the different junction-to-stick conductance ratios.
From percolating to dense random stick networks: Conductivity model investigation
Monte Carlo (MC) simulations are coupled with an efficient iterative algorithm implemented on the grid platform and used to investigate the conductivity of stick systems20,23,24 .

FIG. 1. (Color online) The dependence of the local conductivity exponent t(n) on the stick density n and junction-to-stick conductance ratio Gj /Gs .
From percolating to dense random stick networks: Conductivity model investigation
This explains why on average more junctions than sticks are needed to shortcut the electrodes.
From percolating to dense random stick networks: Conductivity model investigation
Three limiting cases are identified for the conductivity of whole system: on e in the vicinity of the percolation threshold, and two for high densities when either the junctions or sticks are superconductive.
From percolating to dense random stick networks: Conductivity model investigation
As result, the exponent can take values anywhere in the range (1, 2) depending on the junction-to-stick conductance ratio.
From percolating to dense random stick networks: Conductivity model investigation
Therefore, the junction-to-stick conductance ratio Gj /Gs depends on the total length of the individual stick.
