Abstract

A computer-simulation model is used to study the percolation phase transition of stiff chains/sticks on a square lattice. By varying the chain length, effects of the chain length (Lc) on the percolation transition is explored. The percolation exponents seem to remain unchanged with Lc. The percolation threshold pc depends strongly on the chain-length, and shows a power-law dependence pc (Lc) ≈ Lc-12.
