Linear stability analysis of a sharp-interface model for dewetting thin films

Abstract:

The stability of the receding front at the growing rim of a thin liquid film dewetting from a substrate is studied. The underlying forces that drive the dewetting motion are given by the intermolecular potential between the liquid film and the substrate. The role of slippage in the emerging instability is studied via a sharp-interface model for the dewetting thin film, which is derived from the lubrication model via matched asymptotic expansions. Using the separation of the time-scale for the...
