Temperature dependence of resistance is studied for polyimide (PI) samples implanted by Co+ ions with fluences of 2.5x1016-1.25x1017 cm-2 at ion current densities of 4, 8 and 12 uA.cm-2. It is found that electron transport in the implanted samples originates from radiation-induced changes of the PI and Co nanoparticle formation and it depends dramatically on the ion current density. A variable range hopping mechanism dominates for all fluences at a low ion current density of 4 uA.cm-2 while a transition to a semimetallic type of conductance is observed with an increase in ion current density due to agglomeration of the Co nanoparticles forming a percolation way for the charge carriers. It is shown that both quantum effects of weak localisation and electron-electron interaction give a significant contribution to the transport mechanism.
