AbstractIn this Letter, we analyze the problem of monolayer formation onto a flat surface by deposition of hard particles. Our detailed computer simulations of ballistic deposition of hard disks show significant deviations from the classical analytical solution obtained by J. Talbot et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 68, 958 (1992)]. These deviations are due to cooperative adsorption induced by particles trapped above the adsorbed layer. We show that not only the adsorption kinetics but also the jamming (saturation) coverage of the surface depends on the volume fraction of the suspension, a prediction which is completely new. These new cooperative effects cannot be neglected even in the case of very diluted suspensions.
