Slippery or sticky ! Control of wrinkling patterns by selective adhesion

Full-Text   Cite this paper   Add to My Lib


Wrinkling patterns at the metallized surface of thin polymer films are shown to be sensitive to the sticky or slippery character of the polymer/substrate interface (titanium coating, polystyrene film and coated silicon substrate). Selective prefered wrinkle orientation and amplitude are achieved. Existing theoretical models are expanded to specific boundary conditions (adhesive vs slippery) and rationalize these observations.
