This thesis is a research project under Dr. Kenneth S. Mendelson and Mr. Frank G. Karioris aiming to investigate the behavior of conductance near the percolation threshold in an anisotropic resist or network. Measurements are made along two principal directions of conductance and the data are analyzed and interpreted by Sigma 9 computer. The percolation threshold Pc is found to be independent of anisotropy and ( Pc )30=0.5947+-0. 0329 which agrees well with all previously report ed values. As for the critical exponent, this work shows a far different value from those which are generally accepted, presumably I - 1.3. We suspect that it may be due to the fact that we are looking into a region really close to Pc.
