Abstract

Composite and nanocomposite films consisting of metal objects embedded in a dielectric matrix are studied by computer experiment. The electron transport through the composites is calculated in the case when the basic conductivity mechanism is the tunnel effect. It was found that the conductivity of composite film is located into tunneling clusters strongly influenced by objects arrangement in composite film.
