Coarsening dynamics of dewetting films.

Abstract:

Lubrication theory for unstable thin liquid films on solid substrates is used to model the coarsening dynamics in the long-time behavior of dewetting films. The dominant physical effects that drive the fluid dynamics in dewetting films are surface tension and intermolecular interactions with the solid substrate. Instabilities in these films lead to rupture and other morphological changes that promote nonuniformity in the films. Following the initial instabilities, the films break up into near...
