    Abstract: Polymer nanocomposites filled with carbon nanotubes are observed to present an onset of the insulator-to-conductor transition through previous experimental studies. In this work, numerical simulations based on Monte Carlo method are performed to investigate the percolation threshold. The conductive fillers are modeled as a three dimensional (3D) ne... Show More
