Pattern-Directed Dewetting of Ultrathin Polymer Films


We utilize chemically patterned substrates with arrays of progressively narrower stripes (1-15 μm) to investigate the influence of pattern size on the morphology of ultrathin dewetting polystyrene films. The scale and orientation of the spinodal-like height fluctuations of the dewetting patterns are coupled to the imposed substrate chemical frequency… (More)
