For one-component volatile fluids governed by dispersion forces an effective interface Hamiltonian, derived from a microscopic density functional theory, is used to study complete wetting of geometrically structured substrates. Also the long range of substrate potentials is explicitly taken into account. Four types of geometrical patterns are considered: i) one-dimensional periodic arrays of rectangular or parabolic grooves and ii) two-dimensional lattices of cylindrical or parabolic pits. We… CONTINUE READING
