Topological manifestations of surface-roughening collapse in Langmuir monolayers.

Abstract

A transition from surface-roughening collapse to a random network collapse has been investigated in fatty acid Langmuir monolayers. In contrast to the random network crack pattern, the surface-roughening crack pattern grows on a much longer time scale and on a much shorter length scale. A change in the isotherm from a surface pressure "spike" to a "plateau… (More)
