Abstract

A computer-simulation model is introduced to study the variation in the coverage and porosity in a binary system by random sequential adsorption on a periodic square lattice. We study the effects of the range of the repulsive interaction between unlike species and of the probability of deposition of each particle type. For all choices of the interaction range there is a minimum in the total coverage of the lattice which occurs for equal deposition probability of the two species. The saturation coverage decreases on increasing the range of the interaction. For proper choices of the parameters of the model, regimes exist in which either pores or particles of one type form an infinite percolating network.
