Abstract

Ag1-x/Six composite nanoparticle assembled films were prepared using a plasma-gas-condensation cluster beam deposition apparatus. The electrical conductivity σ and Hall coefficient |RH| of Ag1-x/Six nanoparticle assembled films obey a power law of the volume fraction of Ag pAg. The marked change at around pAg = pc indicates that the percolation of Ag nanoparticles takes place at the threshold value pc. Moreover, we found that the |RH| at T = 5 K of the Ag1-x/Six nanoparticle assembled film with the closest pAg to pc is 20 times higher than that of the bulk Ag.
