Morphological Instability of Solid-on-Liquid Thin Film Structures

Abstract

Subject to a compressive membrane force, a solid film on a liquid layer may form wrinkles. When the solid film is very thin, surface stresses contribute to the membrane force. When the liquid layer is very thin, the two interfaces bounding the liquid interact with each other through forces of various physical origins. We formulate the free energy of the… (More)
