Hydrodynamic slip, the motion of a liquid along a solid surface, represents a fundamental phenomenon in fluid dynamics that governs liquid transport at small scales. For polymeric liquids, de Gennes predicted that the Navier boundary condition together with polymer reptation implies extraordinarily large interfacial slip for entangled polymer melts on ideal surfaces; this Navier-de Gennes model was confirmed using dewetting experiments on ultra-smooth, low-energy substrates. Here, we use… Expand
Near-surface rheology and hydrodynamic boundary condition of semi-dilute polymer solutions.
Evanescent wave microscopy is used to investigate near-surface flows of semi-dilute, unentangled polyacrylamide solutions by using both neutral and anionic polymers and shows that monomer charge plays a key role in confined polymer dynamics. Expand
Large slippage and depletion layer at the polyelectrolyte/solid interface.
It is shown that a 2-fluids model taking into account the finite thickness of depletion layers at the non-attractive wall describes accurately the dynamic forces over 4 spatial decades of confinement. Expand
Influence of outer-layer finite-size effects on the dewetting dynamics of a thin polymer film embedded in an immiscible matrix.
A model trilayer dewetting experiment elucidating the effect of solid, no-slip confining boundaries on the bursting of a liquid film in a viscous environment is described. Expand
Unstable Systems of Viscous and Elastic Polymer Thin Films
The work presented in this thesis focuses on the study of viscous and elastic polymer thin films in initially unstable configurations. The systems are driven to flow viscously or deform elasticallyExpand
Irreversible Physisorption of PS-b-PMMA Copolymers on Substrates for Balanced Interfacial Interactions as a Versatile Surface Modification
We present a direct approach to fabricating the perfect neutral layer for block copolymer (BCP) self-assembled thin films. An irreversible physisorption of polystyrene-b-poly(methyl methacrylate)Expand
Effect of Interfacial Adsorption on the Stability of Thin Polymer Films in a Solvent-induced Process
The stability of ultrathin polymer films plays a crucial role in their technological applications. Here, we systematically investigated the influence of interfacial adsorption in physical aging andExpand

Instability of Polystyrene Film and Thermal Behaviors Mediated by Unfavorable Silicon Oxide Interlayer
Instability, glass transition temperature (Tg), and thermal expansion of polystyrene (PS) films are evaluated with respect to the thickness of a silicon oxide (SiOx) interlayer that mediates favora...
Viscoelasticity-Induced Onset of Slip at the Wall for Polymer Fluids
The progressive onset of slip at the wall, which corresponds to a slip length increasing with the solicitation time before reaching a plateau, has been investigated for model viscoelastic polymerExpand


Boundary slip in Newtonian liquids: a review of experimental studies
For several centuries fluid dynamics studies have relied upon the assumption that when a liquid flows over a solid surface, the liquid molecules adjacent to the solid are stationary relative to theExpand
Interfacial Stick-Slip Transition in Simple Shear of Entangled Melts
This article describes a systematic investigation of a discontinuous interfacial stick-slip transition (SST) in simple shear of monodisperse entangled 1,4-polybutadiene (PBD) and polyisoprene (PIP)Expand
Large Slip Effect at a Nonwetting Fluid-Solid Interface
It is well known that, at a macroscopic level, the boundary condition for a viscous fluid at a solid wall is one of ``no slip.'' The liquid velocity field vanishes at a fixed solid boundary. WeExpand
Forces between polymer-bearing surfaces undergoing shear
ADSORBED or grafted polymers are used to control phenomena such as colloidal stability, fluid flow and the tribological properties of surfaces. Forces between polymer-bearing surfaces have beenExpand
Fast flow behavior of highly entangled monodisperse polymers
Abstract A systematic experimental investigation is carried out to clarify the nature of a well-known capillary flow phenomenon in linear monodisperse polybutadienes (PBd). By varying the surfaceExpand
Slippage and nanorheology of thin liquid polymer films.
The experimental focus of this study is the variation of the polymer chain length; the results demonstrate that inter-chain entanglements and in particular their density close to the interface, originating from non-bulk conformations, govern the liquid slip of a polymer. Expand
Can liquids slide? Linking stability and dynamics of thin liquid films to microscopic material properties
Whether a lubricant or a coating wets a surface or not is of great technical importance. Theoretically, it is possible to predict the stability of a thin liquid film on a surface, since it isExpand

Reduced interfacial entanglement density affects the boundary conditions of polymer flow.
Evidence is given that merely a slip-boundary condition at the solid-liquid interface can lead to an asymmetric profile, and variation of molecular weight shows that slippage is directly linked to chain entanglements. Expand
