Electrical conduction of deposited nanostructures is studied by oblique angle deposition. At first, a medium is simulated as nanocolumns by Monte Carlo method, then the effects of porosity on electron transport in 1D and 2D are investigated. The results show that more electrons transfer in media with low porosity, but with increasing porosity, the distance between nanocolumns expands and less electrons transfer. Therefore, the transport current reduces at the surface.
