Abstract

Due to its electronic conductivity and transparency, Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) is an irreplaceable material for today's technol- ogy, such as various flat panel displays. The resultant increase of the demand for indium is a major concern, but can be solved by understanding the detail of electronic conduction in ITO. For this purpose, we are working on a computational physics research on ITO: a model analysis of thin film with reduced amount of indium as a percolation model. Because ITO is typically formed into thin film electrodes in its applications, we are currently focused on 2D percolation models.
