[en] We have studied the connectivity percolation transition in suspensions of attractive square-well spherocylinders by means ofMonte Carlo simulation and connectedness percolation theory. In the 1980s the percolation threshold of slender fibers has been predicted to scale as the fibers’ inverse aspect ratio [Phys. Rev. B 30, 3933 (1984)]. The main finding of our study is that the attractive spherocylinder system reaches this inverse scaling regime at much lower aspect ratios than found in suspensions of hard spherocylinders. We explain this difference by showing that third virial corrections of the pair connectedness functions, which are responsible for the deviation from the scaling regime, are less important for attractive potentials than for hard particles.
