Suppressing instability of liquid thin films by a fibril network and its application to micropatterning without a residual layer.


This study proposes a method to coat thin films of non-volatile solvents on substrates. A small amount of crystalline polymer dissolved in solvents forms a network of crystalline fibrils during the coating process. The network suppresses dewetting of the solvent liquid and helps the liquid film sustaining on the substrate. This strategy can be used in soft… (More)
